62in x 78in. This quilt is a lot of fun to make and can be pulled together easily from a mix of light and dark fabrics. Many of my quilts contain more fabrics than the requirements call for – I always enjoy throwing in an extra print or two from my stash just to spice things up. The requirements below list the necessary yardage as well as the total number of squares needed if you choose to work from your stash. Decide on a theme such as brights, batiks, florals, etc. then divide your mix into light and darks and start cutting squares! Enjoy!
Uses the Straight Out of Line (CGRKA3) by Creative Grids. The Straight Out of Line ruler creates unique four-patch blocks with the illusion of curves. Ruler markings make it possible to cut squares from 4 – 10 inch squares – and every half-inch in between. The finished size of the pieced blocks is approximately 3/4 inch less than the cut block. The ruler slides easily over the fabric until pressure is applied. Then, our exclusive gripper holds the fabric in place while cutting, eliminating slipping and miss-cuts!
Ruler(s) must be ordered separately
