    I had to draw the grid myself on the muslin, that is why you will have to wash the quilt when you have completed it.

    the sq's are stitched one row at a time after you can glue each of them to the muslin .When you have completed all 196 of them you will have each sg. stitch on all 4 sides You will have finished you quiltiing now you are ready to put your binding on and wash { you may use any school glue stick I pinned mine on worked fine for me. hope this is more clearer}
    by the way remember to quilt from one side to the other making a continuous quilting line.
    hope this is much more clearer for you all GOOD LUCK!!!!

    I'm a new quilter and I love this quilt. But, am I understaning this correctly. Is this amost like a rag quilt except you are not sewing the seems together but leaving raw seems exposed and sewing the squares to the muslin? It's beautiful, I love the colors.

    You require three layers ,backing of your choice, batting, and muslin or solid fabric of you choice .Layer one on top of the other, I used basting glue to put mine together,but, you can put yours together what ever way you may wish [pin or baste] I am lazy.
    1 charm pack cut in quarters making 196 sqs or 2 1/2" I found pinking the edges was much better you won't have too many strings to cut off .Draw grid 3" apart horizontally and vertically.
    before gluing or pinning the sq's down place on muslin to see how you want them, making sure it is to your satisfaction. You will have lines from marking you grid place sq's on 3" lines . When placing sq"s they should be 1/2" between each sq. This is not applique. Do not turn under. After you have put binding on you have to wash.

    Hope you can understand my inst. if you don't please let me know. Good luck all Noella

    Not to contradict anyone but the quilt in the picture doesn't show raw edges around the squares. Am I missing something? From the tute about, it sounds like there are raw edges to fray when washed???

    I looked at the link in the third post but that quilt doesn't look like what I'm invisioning for the instructions. Are there supposed to be raw edges that fray when washed. Is that why she pinked the edges for less strings???
