Please do not ask me to resize the quilts here on my site. I don’t have time! I only offer free instructions for the quilts I make or plan to make.
If you have problems opening the above link, right click on it and save it to your computer and then open it. Email me with any questions or problems at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: These instructions were UPDATED on Feb 19, 2011 and if you downloaded them prior to that, a clear explanation for cutting the border half rectangle blocks was not included as you need both regular and reversed triangles when working with rectangles.
While I usually don’t provide fabric yardage for my scrap quilts — EQ7 estimates for this quilt are
1 and 3/8 yards of the background fabric
1 and 3/8 yards of pink
1 and 7/8 yards of brown
Both the pink and brown estimates assume that the borders are pieced.
PLEASE NOTE – these are untested estimates and are provided only as a guide. I’d suggest having extra on hand especially if using the Accuquilt GO to cut your blocks.
My finished top
Here’s another one I made in greens and browns. This one uses a half rectangle block for the pieced border …. experiment with different options – flying geese … piano keys … anything you want!
