I want to make this with the following combo. . . White = 1, 4, 8, 12, 24, 21,17, 13. Colour A = 3, 6. Colour B = 5, 9. Colour C = 7, 10. Colour D = 11, 22. Colour E = 23, 19. Colour F = 20, 16. Colour G = 18, 15. Colour H = 14, 2.
I quilted the 12″ blocks using free motion around a freezer paper template. I removed basting pins and ironed on the template block by block. The pattern I created was just perfect for this technique. I easily went wider than the freezer paper and the final result still looked great even though it wasn’t precisely the same on each block.
Quilting Tip of the Day: Dawn dishwashing soap is great to wash your finished quilts. It's similar to Synthrapol, a detergent dyers use to keep fugitive dyes from redepositing on fabric. I use just a tablespoon or two per quilt so it doesn't foam up the machine. I also wash new fabric with it for the same reason. (Wash new fabric in HOT water.) Cheap and available everywhere.
