How did you all like the Bom quilt which I have called the Bakers Dozen Square Dance?
(If you do not wish to set it out like this you could sash in uniform way and use the extra 9 patches to make the border with)
I did lay this all out and move the blocks several times to achieve the right effect (with hubbies help) of my blocks and colours. I suggest you place the house block central as I have, why? I feel this draws the eye to the centre of the quilt then allows our eyes drift around all of our other blocks. It's a bit like the saying all roads lead to home.
You need to join the extra 9 patches made from the December blog as follows to form 4 x 12.5" square blocks and 6 12.5" x 6.5" rectangle blocks. These are fillers.
For the sashing strips cut 2.5" width of fabric. We need 25 strips to make the sashing and the inner border. Cut the following from the light grey border (or whichever colour you prefer)
1 x 42.5" length
1 x 34.5"
2 x 28.5"
3 x 26.5"
7 x 20.5"
Using some of the ends from the previous strips and some of the other strips cut
14 x 12.5"
then you should have 7 strips which can be used for the inner border.
From the dark grey fabric cut 4 x 6.5" squares
We can now start to assemble the quilt. Clear a space or use a design wall. I use a floor as I haven't set up my design wall.
|this was my initial layout before I moved the house and played with all of the 9 patches|
Join the following Sections with a 12.5" strip.
Onto section F place an extra 12.5" strip on the outside of the 9 patch fillers
Secondarily, do section I and J making these into long pieces as in the picture.
|this is a quick overview of this section which we will piece together soon|
|this is section A and B now know as AB|
Sew the 34.5" strip to inner part of section I as per the photo
