Designed by Abbie Searle – Finished size 67″ x 52″
I’m going to give you sizes and the order in which to join your sashings/border and blocks together. Once you’ve done this you should have your completed quit top, obviously if you want to make any adjustments or addition that’s totally up to you, but whatever, I’d love to see photos of all completed projects please!!
I’m not going to give details of how to layer, quilt and bind, I’m going to assume you have the knowledge to do that for yourself. Having said that, please do message me if you need advice.
If any of your blocks are the wrong size when you get to putting them together, do not worry!!! Add a strip on, take a strip off, it’s what I’ve done with the original, it’s all good and becomes part of it!
Sashing measurements: (including seam allowances)
*** If you need to make joins in the length, don’t be worrying where they are, this is patchwork after all!
