This step will finish the assembly of the center field of the 'Traditional' Setting and begin the pieced borders. We will continue to offer the finishing steps broken down into sewing steps, so that those who are working on the quilt as it posts may continue to follow along while continuing to finish their quilt. After all of the steps have finished posting for the 'Traditional Setting' the 'Non-Traditional' Setting will begin.
**A note about the fabrics: For the Traditional Setting quilt, we will be showing blocks made in a different colorway than our usual red, white, and blue. These blocks were made to test the pattern and are from our ThimbleberriesTM stash...you may find photos of many of these blocks in the "Ben Franklin Blocks" photo album on the left side of our Main/Home Page. The usual red, white, and blue blocks will be featured in the Non-Traditional Setting posting later.
This month's installment uses previously made units therefore there is no tutorial for this step. The yardage for the inner border is listed in the supplies on Page 1.
The next set of instructions for this quilt will post soon; we will see you then...Happy stitching!
