This step will begin the assembly of the center field of the Traditional Setting for finishing the Benjamin Franklin Mystery Quilt! 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 is also easy and fast to finish! Make sure the 12 1/2-inch blocks you are using are square before you begin! If you are behind in making your blocks, it is time to get caught up!
The next set of instructions for this quilt will post early next month, so we will see you soon!!
