This step will add the side pieced borders of the 'Traditional' Setting quilt as well as finish the Traditional Setting. This last step is flexible...some may not have made all of the blocks, for one reason or another; this step allows for a little leeway as desired. The supplies included call for all of the blocks made for the quilt...feel free to omit, substitute, or make repeat blocks as you see fit.
**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 pieced border was listed in the supplies for Step 9.
Please see the notes on Page 3 for more information! Happy stitching!
