A few days into February and if you’re wanting a design to make for your February QOV, here’s one! I still don’t have a name and no . . it is not going to be called Red Necks, White Socks and Blue Ribbon Beer! Other suggestions would be appreciated.
I’m working now on getting the blocks made to test the instructions and depending on how much sewing time I get in the next few days, I hope to start posting instructions next week.
As shown, it comes out to being about 62″ x 79″. According to EQ, you will need the following amounts of fabric. This does not include fabric for the binding.
Background – 2-1/4 yards
Red – 1-1/8 7ards
Gold – 1-1/4 yards
Light Blue -7/8 yards
Dark Blue – 2 yards
If you’re not making this for a QOV and want to make a larger version, what about this one?
This quilt has 7 borders, which is the number of borders I most often use to achieve the look I like. It finishes at 78″ x 90″. It could easily be made larger by adding more blocks. I’ve given you a picture to go by . . if you want to make the quilt look like this, all the info you need to figure it out can be found in my newest book, 60 Pieced Quilt Borders.
