This is the final instructions for Road to Llano. Thanks for trusting me enough to start this project with me. I try to always share good instructions and I hope I never let you down. I know it’s a big investment to buy the fabric, not to mention the investment of your time. I hope you’re always happy with my projects. It makes me kinda sad to see this one end. Seems like just yesterday we were looking at and discussing fabric colors.
I had hoped to finish this project by the end of June and we barely made it! How has this project been for you? I think I was more worried about writing the instructions than the actual construction. As I made the second quilt, I realized it wasn’t so hard after all.
NOTE: When sewing the border blocks together, pay attention to the end blocks on the top and bottom borders. One corner block on the top and one on the bottom borders are turned differently to align with the side border blocks.
Here’s your border chart.
Note: For Border #1, the top and bottom width is different from the side border width. That is correct.
Note: In the drawing, the gold along the outer edge is the binding . . not another border.
Also, because of the bias edges, these borders are going to seem short. Work that fullness in .. these numbers are correct. This is a very good example of how easy it would be to get a quilt totally out of whack if we were to sew strips to the top without knowing what the measurements should be.
I hope you have enjoyed this project and I hope you finish your quilt!
The next quilt along will be the Road to Brenham which will begin in mid-August.
