Assembling the quilt top – Textured 4-patch quilt


Cut:

  • nine 3 in squares in cream fabric
  • 24 rectangles 3 in x 10 1/2 in red fabric
  • 2 strips 5 1/2 in x 50 in
  • 2 strips 5 1/2 x 61
  • 2 strips 1 1/2 in x 48 in in red in red fabric
  • 2 strips 1 1/2 in x 50 1/2 in in red fabric

Placement diagram

Place the blocks in the desired order or as per diagram above. Then place the sashing between blocks and the squares in the intersections.

I stitched the blocks from left to right but you could well start from top to bottom or whatever way you’re accustomed to.

After stitching all sashing, add the first narrow border. Cut two strips 1 1/2 in x 48 in in red in red fabric and two strips 1 1/2 in x 50 1/2 in in red fabric. Stitch the 48 in long strips on opposite sides. Press seams and stitch the other two strips on the opposite sides.

Almost there.

Your quilt size after adding the sashing is about 50 in x 50 in.

The next and last step before quilting is adding a 5 1/2 in cream border all around.

The top is finished.
