X-Files Quilt & Stitch Along: I Want To Believe WEEK TWO

#xfilesquilt - I Want To Believe on fandominstitches.com

Welcome to the second week of our #XFILESQUILT Event!

I Want To Believe: An X-Files Quilt & Stitch Along is designed and presented by me, Jennifer Ofenstein (also find me on sewhooked.com).

There is a lot of useful information below this week's block, including the link to last week's pattern, so be sure to keep scrolling!


And now... BLOCK TWO!

Trust No One by Jennifer Ofenstein
6” X 27” Finished (6 1/2” X 27 1/2” unfinished)
made with background fabric and your second lightest color (see fabric info here)

While playing around with designs for this quilt, I knew I wanted some of the more iconic phrases from the series. I chose three, including Trust No One.

Jennifer's Tips for Week 2: 
  • There are a lot of pieces for this design, but it is quite simple to piece. Each unit can be chain pieced. Cut 4 strips of your lightest fabric (the letters) 1 1/4" x WOF and it should be plenty to get you through piecing. I cut two 6" strips x WOF of my background fabric to work with and had plenty left over. 
  • One thing to watch: make sure your light fabric is always a bit wider in the seam allowance than the dark fabric to keep the dark edges from shadowing through (see photo)
  • To reduce bulk as you are joining the pattern units (A, B, C, etc.) together, remove the paper from the seam allowance as you go.
