This is my lame attempt to give you directions to make my quilt. Sorry, but this is as good as it's going to get. Hopefully any of you who really wanted to know how to make it will be able to decipher this vague approach. The pattern is the black and white outline below. You want to print this out, enlarge it to 18" (or whatever you desire), then cut them out to use as template. You may find as you're piecing that there will be some excess seam allowance on piece 6 and 7 but you can just trim it down after you've pieced it together. The blocks went together very easily and neatly, so it didn't seem to be a problem.
1. Make the 18" squares using the pattern above, with a 1/4" seam allowance, in the number order:
- 1 to 2.
- 3 to 4 to 5.
- 3, 4, 5 to 6.
- 3,4,5,6 to 7.
- 3,4,5,6,7 to 1,2 (makes complete sense, right?!)2. For the 54" quilt, you will need 9 of these blocks. For the Queen size 25 blocks (see below). I'm using the Blue Bell color ways of Shade Garden from my upcoming collection with Henry Glass & Co for this example.3. Randomly rotate the squares to your liking or how you see them in the picture above.4. Stitch together, press flat.5. Layer with batting that measures the exact size as topper and a backing piece that measures 56" x 56".6. Quilt it: I used the tied method, cuz I was chicken to try machine quilting. I made little knots with a contrasting embroidery floss every 4" as a grid. Each knot a tight little square knot.7. Fold the excess fabric from the backing in half, then in half again over the front of the quilt facing. Pin in place and miter corners. Topstitch 1/8" from folded edge on the facing side through all thicknesses.8. Voila!You are more than welcome to contact me if you have any questions!
