It's time to put our Garden together!! I'm going to repeat the cutting instructions for the sashing and borders, the measurements are already in the General Instructions pdf that I uploaded before we started. If you don't have that, and haven't started your quilt yet, I urge you to download it - it's free. I had you cut the borders and sashing before starting the quilt, as they're cut from the same fabric you used for your block backgrounds.
So - without any further ado - let's get busy!
Cut 2 – 4” x 44”
Cut 2 – 4” x 54”
Cut 6 – 1 ½” x 13”
Cut 2 – 1 ½” x 44
I have you cut a little larger than you'll need, as a precaution. Attach the sashing and borders, trimming as you go. Better to have a little longer than you need instead of running short!
Attach a 1 1/2" x 13" strip to the bottom of the Peace block, press and trim even.
Attach the top of the Hope block to the sashing strip .
Attach a 1 1/2" x 13" strip to the top of the Faith block. Press and trim even.
Attach the sashed Faith block to the bottom of the Hope block.
Repeat for the next two rows. Press well.
Attach a 1 1/2" x 44" strip to the right side of the first row. Press and trim even.
Attach another strip to the right side of the second row. Press and trim even.
Attach your rows together.
Using starch helps a lot with this whole process.
Attach a 4" x 44" border to the top and bottom of the quilt. Press and trim even.
Attach a 4" x 54" border to each side of the quilt. Press and trim even.
Sorry for the poor picture quality!!!
And you are done! Congratulations - you have a beautiful quilt top! I'm using a jelly roll for the binding, piecing it together. I do like a scrappy binding! I'm not sure yet how I'm going to quilt it, nothing fancy because I don't know how. I would dearly love to see pictures of your finished quilts, you can email me or post on my facebook page (link on sidebar).
I'm off to get more coffee and think about what's next....
See you soon!
