Welcome to installment 5 of Mariann's quilt.
Now that we are past the confusing corner blocks
and the large 18 inch blocks are constructed.
I wanted to look at a couple of details
Getting the corners of these blocks to line up was a challenge, it took some experimenting to
get it right and even when I found the 'trick' it did not always work out as it should.
I don't know if you can pick it out in this picture, above
to match the corner of the triangle and the rectangle (below)
you line up the raw edge of the triangle (lower seam in pic above) with the
sewn edge of the rectangle (upper seam), then when you sew your 1/4 inch seam
it comes out right on (most of the time).
Clear as mud?????
In the picture above you also see the 3 borders added to the quilt.
The aqua and dark blue borders are 2 inches each and the little flip border
is one inch, see how it flips up, I love using this kind of accent.
And here is the corner with all three borders. Next comes the quilting.
I hope your enjoying the process of the quilt.
May God bless you richly.
