Birdie Stitches Quilt Top Instructions
Have you finished up your stitching? =p Today I’m going to share the Birdie Stitches finishing instructions.
Sashing & Border Cutting Instructions:
From the sashing fabric cut:
-6 strips 2.5″ x WOF, subcut 3 strips into (8) 2.5″ x 12.5″ strips, sew the three remaining strips together and cut into 2 strips 2.5″ x 58.5″
-Cut 5 strips 2.5″ x 40.5″
From the border fabric cut:
Cut 6 strips 4.5″ x WOF, piece together, cut 2 strips 4.5″ x 52.5″ & 2 strips 4.5″ x 58.5″
Begin by sewing the 2.5″ x 12.5″ strips to the 12.5″ blocks. Press seams toward the sashing. Make 4 sets of 3 blocks.
Sew the 2.5″ x 40.5″ sashing strips as shown. Press seams toward sashing. Make sure to add a strip to the top and bottom of the quilt top. Sew a 2.5″ x 58.5″ strip to the left and right of the quilt top. Press seams out.
Sew a 4.5″ x 58.5″ border strip to the left and right of the quilt top. Press seams out. Sew a 4.5″ x 52.5″ border strip to the top and bottom of the quilt top. Press seams out.
Your quilt top is complete!–You are now ready to sandwich your quilt and quilt as desired.
You all are probably ready to see my finished Birdie Stitches quilt at this point in time…however, it is still in block form. =p It will be hand quilted using coordinating perle cotton in the sashing areas. I’ll be sure to share it when it is finished! =)
