The squares were cut 6.5" by 6.5" allowing for a 1/4 inch seam allowance to have 6 inch finished squares. Each square was basted one inch away from the raw edge. We used white thread on the wrong side and coloured thread on the right side. The basting square frame a was a guide for guests to write in, leaving the seam allowance blank.
I used Electric Quilt 7 software to design the layout.
The nine patches were deliberately placed randomly to add interest.
I started at the bottom, first row assembled, sewn and pressed.
The love messages are fantastic.
Signature patch with my initials and the year sewn in the bottom right hand corner.
This quilt was finished at 11:30 pm October 9th. Part two "Quilting" of the photo tutorial will follow tomorrow.
