|Here's a quick look on how to make the ECHO quilt, especially|
those sashing strips. These directions are for Intermediate quilters or adventurous advanced beginners.
|30" x 30" Quilt Featuring the ECHO block with a special sashing strip.|
|3" x 12" Sashing Strip.|
Layout 2 Background Rectangles, 2 Flying Geese A, 2 Flying Geese B and 1 Hourglass Unit as shown in the Sashing Strip picture above. Sew units together to make the Sashing Strip that measures 3 1/2" x 12 1/2". Make 4 of these.
Layout 4 ECHO blocks (directions from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol 11, of course), 4 Sashing Strips and one Cornerstone as shown in the quilt picture. Sew units within each row together. Then, sew rows together to make a 27 1/2" square quilt center.
From the background fabric, cut two 2" x 27 1/2" Side Border strips and two 2" x 30 1/2" Top/Bottom Border strips. Sew Side Border strips onto opposite sides of the quilt center. Then, sew the Top/Bottom Border strips onto the remaining sides of the quilt to measure 30 1/2" square.
Thank you for the tutorial for your awesome block!ReplyDelete
