The instructor said to pin the extra length matching the raw side edges of the extensions, iron in the 45* fold, open it back up ( leaving the pins in) and draw a sewing line in on the fold to sew on. It worked well and was easy.

That is a beautiful quilt. Is it from a pattern or your own design?

[QUOTE=AngeliaNR;8190615]That is a beautiful quilt. Is it from a pattern or your own design?[/QUOT. This is a replica of a quilt that was posted on QB. I wish I could give credit but when I got a new IPad, I lost some of my saved posts. She displayed hers hanging from her balcony and kindly shared the dimensions of the pieces. I looked through 30 pages of the thread of Scrappy Quilt Show Right Here but didn’t see it. If anyone recognize who did the original, please post the name.

Beautiful Quilt. I saw the original thread a long time ago and saved a picture of the quilt, but unfortunately did not link to the thread. I had forgotten about this pattern, but after seeing yours think I need to make one sometime soon. I certainly will not be making one as large as yours.

It makes me think of how the sand patterns at the shore of the ocean. Pretty

It is a very pretty quilt. I think it would make a nice Quilt of Valor quilt. Can you share the sizes that you used? Thanks!!

image.jpegMy pieces were 2X5 because I wanted to use up lots of light and dark scraps. You can make it any size you like to get a square block. Mine sewn together ended up 8X8. The quilt has 12X12 rows of 8 inch blocks.
