Quilt Top Notes/Techniques
The pattern was not great. It’s a shame they don’t include instructions for a length wise outer border. If alternating colours of scrappy blocks, make sure 10 start with colour A and 10 with colour B. The pieced border should end with the same colours length wise, and the other colour width wise. The amount of fabric listed for the backing will only give you approx 2″ overhang on the top and the bottom of the quilt. If you are sending to a longarmer, recalculate the backing requirement.
Quilted from the back, using the Poinsettia print fabric as a guide for quilting.
