QOV Mystery #2 Scrappy Clue #6
Inside quilt top assembly:
Now assemble the interior of your quilt by sewing Units together to form rows as shown below:
Then sew the vertical rows together as shown, matching seams.
First Inside Border: Sew (5) 1 1/2" x WOF WHITE strips together, end to end.
(If using 1 1/2" x 10 strips, sew them together, end to end.
Cut (2) pieces 48 1/2". Sew one to each side of top. Next measure and cut (2) pieces 38 1/2" each, and sew to top
and bottom of quilt.
Second Inside Border: Sew (8) Red/White/Blue strips together. Add (1) 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" RED strip to end, as shown:
Sew a border strip to each side of quilt.
Next sew (6) Red/White/Blue strips together. Add (1) RED 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" strip to end, as above.
Sew a GOLD 4 1/2" square to each end of border strip.
Sew one of these border strips to top and bottom of quilt.
Third Inside Border: Sew (6) 1 1/2"x WOF WHITE strips together, end to end (or use 10" strips sewn together.
Cut (2) pieces 58 1/2" long. Sew these to the sides of quilt top. Next measure (2) strips 48 1/2" and sew to
top and bottom.
Outside Border: Sew the 5" x WOF BLUE strips together end to end (or if using 5"x10" strips, sew them together
end to end).
Cut (2) strips 60 1/2" and sew to sides of quilt. Next cut (2) strips 58" each, and sew to top and bottom of quilt.
(Note: When cutting border strips, it's always a good idea to measure your quilt through the middle to determine your actual border measurement, as some 1/4" seams may not be accurate everytime, and your border measurements could be a smidgeon off.)
