54-40 or Fight Big Block Quilt

I love big block quilts to make a child or baby sized quilt quick or to use as picnic blanket or even to hang on the wall. This big block quilt uses the 54-40 or Fight block 36 inches square finished with 4 inch borders. It will measure about 44 inches square when finished.
  1. Choose at least 3 fabrics, or more if you like.
  2. Set the 54-40 or Fight calculator settings as follows and sew the big quilt block:
    Method = Traditional piecing
    Size = 36"
    Columns = 1
    Rows = 1
    Fabric Width = whatever you're working with.
  3. Attach cornerstones of 4½ inches square with border of 4½ inches wide.
  4. Sandwich and quilt your quilt.
  5. Finish with double mitered binding using 6 strips 2½ inches wide.
Happy Quilting,
