Here is the last clue to our mystery quilt. It's been lots of fun doing this for you and I hope you love the results as much as I do.
It's time to put all those beautiful squares together....
Your Frayed Sawtooth Star and Sarah's Choice blocks should measure 10 1/2" square. Sometimes mine end up a wee bit smaller. I tend to piece tighter. That's OK - as long as they are the same size. So square up those blocks.
Next lay them out as shown below in Fig. 1.
You will be sewing these together in rows. The blocks should link together at the seams - if not then you may have to rotate Sarah's Choice block one turn. Keep in mind that the colours on the Frayed Sawtooth Star and all going in the same direction.
Once the rows are pieced you will then sew the rows together. Make sure you press each row in the opposite direction and then they will all link together.
The centre of the quilt will measure 50 1/2" square. Yours may be smaller or bigger depending on your squared up block size. Going forward my instructions will be based on the actual size of the quilt as per a 10 1/2" block.
First border - with colour #3 cut 6 - 2" strips the width of the fabric. Two of these strips will be cut in half. Sew one strip plus the half strip together to make an approx. 60" long strip. Cut two of the strips exactly the length of your quilt - 50 1/2". Pin to opposite sides and sew down. Press to the outer edge of the quilt. Next re-measure. cut the two remaining strips 53 1/2" long, pin to the opposite sides, sew, press to the outside.
