Fettered Friendship Stars Quilt Pattern Bordered
Continuing on from the previous post;
Fettered Friendship Stars Quilt Pattern. You can see the link below here for the Free Quilt Pattern. You will find the links to the blocks there.
I decided to finish this quilt with a simple border.
Finished Quilt size 69 1/2″ x 69 1/2″.
Fabric Requirements for the whole quilt
2 metres or 2 1/2 yards of background homespun fabric in cream or white
Approximately 1/3 of a metre / yard of each of 12 different plaid / check fabrics,
Please remember that you can also use cotton shirting if you like for some or all of the blocks. I used a couple of well loved shirts from my husband to incorporate into the quilt for sentimental value. This would also be a good memory quilt. 🌷
All fabrics are washed and lightly pressed before commencement.
Cutting instructions for the whole quilt
From the 12 assorted plaids / checks cut;
2 of 3 1/2″ width of fabric strips from each colour and cross cut at least 20 of 3 1/2″ squares from each to make at total of 237 of 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ squares
1 of 2″ width of fabric strips from each fabric and cross cut at least 16 from each fabric to make a total of 192 of 2″ x 2″ squares
From the cream homespun cut;
13 of 3 1/2″ width of fabric strips and cross cut 196 of 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ squares
And 10 of 2″ width of fabric strips then cross cut to make 192 of 2″ x 2″ squares
Method for the Border
To add the border use the 88 of 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ remainingsquares in the same fabrics used for the quilt. I used 12 different plaids and checks.
Sew into 4 long Strip Sets. 2 sets should have 21 squares and 2 sets should have 23 squares each.
Once the strip sets are completed, snip them apart. Add the 2 sets of 21 squares to two opposite sides of the quilt. Make sure that the seams are nesting. Pin in place at each seam junction. Sew the seams. Then add the remainder two sets of 23 squares to the two remaining unbordered sides of the quilt.
Now here is the finished quilt top.
Now for the sandwich and quilting.,,.
I have finished quilting this quilt. I quilted it on my Singer 31K 20 treadle. Here is a link to the quilting pattern.
