Navajo Blanket Quilt - Castle Wall Border with Anne Baxter
Classes with Anne Baxter • Educational, G, 01-Jun-2018
You are on the final band of this lovely blanket quilt and again you only need to create one.
Anne guides you through the sewing sequence. She reminds us to be careful about the direction of your sewing when strip piecing and talks us through the seam pressing, so that you get a good flat result at the end. In addition, she gives you permission to change the colour sequence, if you want!
Again remember to measure and create the band to your magic size. You have the opportunity of a 'fudge' factor, but also remember to keep your band symmetrical - it will look better.
Almost there, next time we will be putting it all together!
