3.       Cut the strip sets vertically into 2 ½” strips.











4.       Sew the sets together to create the Nine-Patch block

          as shown here. You should have 12 Nine Patch blocks      

          measuring 6 ½” square.    
5.      After the Nine-Patch blocks are sewn together, lay out your pattern with the

          6 ½” squares (Fabric A) in an alternating pattern. You should have 6 rows down

          with 6 squares across for a total of 30 blocks.


     ***IF your Nine Patch blocks are smaller than 6 inches… trim the 6 ½” squares

to match the size of the nine patches. (Example… your nine-patch block measures 5 ½” square. Cut the 6 ½” squares down to 5 ½”.)***

6.       Sew each row together, with right sides together, matching the seams of row 1     with the seams of row 2, pinning as you see fit. Repeat for row 3-6.


7.       Add the right and left borders, trimming the excess border fabric even with the rest of the quilt top. Repeat for the top and bottom borders.


8,      Layer the quilt top over low loft cotton batting and backing. Quilt as you desire.Remember that this quilt will be loved and washed a lot, so make sure that there    is enough stitching to hold the quilt together for a long time. Bind the quilt as   normal.  


9.       Wash and dry the completed quilt. (Do not use fabric softener).
