Do you have your rulers, mats and cutters at the ready??
I don't want to keep you waiting. Did you pop over to the Quilters Showcase blog to enter the giveaway? If you just got here to my post today you may want to scroll down and read a few of the previous posts too.
* for starters we are going to assume a usable fabric width of 42" a.k.a. *wof
Here we go.....From your focus print fabric:
|cut 6 strips 4-1/2" x wof *width of fabric|
|Trim 2 border strips to 34" long|
|Trim the other 4 border strips to 30"long|
Yes, I know that's 6 border strips, you'll see as we go.....set these aside for now.
Cut 3 more strips 4-1/2" x *wof from the focus print
and cut strips into 24 (4-1/2") squares
From the dark fabric cut 2 strips 4-1/2" x *wof. Cut strips into 15 (4-1/2") squares
Also from the dark fabric cut 2 strips 2-1/2" x *wof.
From the light fabric, cut 2 strips 2-1/2" x *wof
From the remaining 4 fabrics, cut 6 strips from each of the fabrics. Cut strips 1-/12" x *wof.
That will be 24 1-1/2" strips all together
Okay - that's all the cutting for now. That was easy wasn't it.
Soon we'll start stitching and that's easy peasy too!
