Bright Hopes quilt

This Bright Hopes quilt measures about 52 inches square and uses the same block just turned for a fun effect.

Use the Bright Hopes quilt block calculator to make 9 blocks 12 inches square. Arrange blocks in 3 rows by 3 columns and turn them as desired. Sew blocks together with a ¼ inch seam.

Border 1 uses 4 strips 2½ inches wide plus 4 cornerstone squares 2½ inches.

Border 2 uses 6 strips 6½ inches wide.

Backing and batting should be at least 58 inches square.

For a double thick mitered binding, use the calculator for 52 inch square quilt.

Happy Quilting,
