We're celebrating the season with 12 days of holiday-themed block tutorials using Ro Gregg's gorgeous and glittering Silent Night collection. Today we're showing you how to assemble the quilt!
Here's a look at our finished Silent Night Sampler (complete with a snowy background!)
|Finished Quilt Size: 52" square|
If you prefer to play around with the layout, the 12" square blocks are interchangeable, as are the 6" x 12" blocks (presents, candy cane).
Row 1: Sew these four blocks together.
Row 2: Sew the present and wreath block together, and then add the stockings to the top. Sew star block #3 and the cardinal together, and then add the ornaments to the bottom. Join the two row sections together.
Row 3: Sew these four blocks together.
Here's a view of the quilt center as you join the pieces:
From the green:
Cut four 4-1/2" squares
Cut five 1-1/2" x 42" strips for inner border
From the medallion:
Cut five 4-1/2" x 42" strips for outer border
Step 1: Sew the five 1-1/2" x 42" green strips short ends together to make a long strip. Measure the quilt length and cut two strips to size. Sew to opposite sides of the quilt. Measure the quilt width and cut two strips to size. Sew to the top and bottom of the quilt.
Step 2: Sew the five 4-1/2" x 42" medallion strips short ends together to make a long strip. Measure the quilt length and width (the number should be the same). Cut four strips to size. Sew two strips to opposite sides of the quilt. Sew the 4-1/2" green squares to both ends of the remaining strips and sew to the top and bottom of the quilt.
