Unfortunately, I don’t have a better picture of my new quilt. This one is before adding the borders.
The final quilt looks like this diagram. I LOVE it and can’t wait to see it quilted.
There are 132 x 6” blocks, in 10 different patterns. The size before borders: 66” x 72”. With 6” borders: 78” x 84”.
I know this is a busy time of the year for everyone, but if you need a quilt for Christmas and want to try something new, maybe you would like this quilt?
I will be happy to send you this pattern if you could stitch it (only the top) before Christmas (I pieced it in two days) and tell me if the numbers are correct:)
If you are interested, please send me an email (my address is in the right side bar). Thank you for your help.
- Background fabric (I used tan) for the 132 blocks: 3¾ yards
- Accent fabric 1 for blocks (I used green): 2/3 yard;
- Accent fabric 2 for blocks (I used red): 2/3 yard;
- For borders
Accent fabric 1: 2/3 yard (you have to piece each border from three pieces- this is the most economical way); allow more if you don’t want to piece the borders (a little more than 2 yards).
Accent fabric 2: 2/3 yard
- Fabric for binding: 2/3 yard, your choice of color.
It is better to have a little more fabric than it is listed, cutting mistakes happen!
