Sorry that this update is a little late – life with a young family tends to throw little curveballs at your routines quite often.
There are two steps to this month – firstly, we will be using this month to catch up on any steps that you may be a little behind in, and secondly we will be adding our first border.
So – to recap our months so far.
Month One – we should have a strip measuring 9.5” x 42.5”
Month Two – we should have two strips measuring 4.5” x 42.5”
Month Three – we should have our log cabin row measuring 7.5” x 42.5”
Month Four – we should have one strip measuring 4.5” x 42.5”
and one measuring 2.5” x 42.5”
Month Five – we should have one strip measuring 7.5” x 42.5”
Month Six – we should have one strip measuring 6.5” x 42.5”
Month Seven – we should have one strip measuring 8.5” x 42.5”
After all your blocks are finished and in rows measuring the above, stitch together as shown below. It’s up to you where you place the rows, however feel free to copy my layout if you wish.
When all stitched together, your quilt top should measure 57.5” x 42.5”.
Now we need the half yard of inner border fabric we have set aside previously. I have used a plummy purple.
Cross cut into six (2) inch strips.
Join together into one long strip and cut this into four smaller strips, two measuring 42.5” and two measuring 60.5”.
Stitch a 42.5” strip to top and bottom of your quilt and press. Stitch the longer strips to either side of your quilt and press.
Quilt should now measure 45.5” x 60.5”
Set aside for now, making sure that all your steps are up to date.
