Guild Sampler fabric Requirements and cutting Instructions

Guild Sampler Fabric Requirements and Beginning Cutting Instructions

This quilt is made up of 35 squares measuring 12 inches finished. Eighteen of the blocks have dark on the outside, and 17 have light on the outside. Feel free to change around the colours, or the numer of squares you make. For the quilt to be made as presented you will need 2.5 meters of a dark fabric and 2.5 meters of a light fabric for the setting triangles for each block.

CUTTING INSTRUCTIONS

Dark Fabric:

Cut 6 strips @ 6 7/8 inches from the full width of the fabric. Cut these strips into 36 squares measuring 6 7/8 inches. Cut these squares in half once along the diagonal. These half square triangles will be used for the outer setting triangles.

Cut 5 strips @ 5 1/8 inches from the full width of the fabric. Cut these strips into 34 squares measuring 5 1/8 inches. Cut these squares in half once along the diagonal. These smaller half square triangles will be used as the inner setting triangles.

Light Fabric:

Cut 6 strips @ 6 7/8 inches from the full width of the fabric. Cut these strips into 34 squares measuring 6 7/8 inches. Cut these squares in half once along the diagonal. These half square triangles will be used for the outer setting triangles.

Cut 5 strips @ 5 1/8 inches from the full width of the fabric. Cut these strips into 36 squares measuring 5 1/8 inches. Cut these squares in half once along the diagonal. Once all these are cut, you have the pieces that you need to put all your sampler blocks together. The first sampler block will come out on the 17th of September.
