To Make a Bed Quilt

This quilt is designed to be a twin-size quilt measuring 69 x 93 inches. We have used a 3-inch plain border with setting squares made from the center of the block, the 3-inch Diamond and Stripes border, and 3-inch sashing strips with setting squares as shown.

Diamond and Stripes Border

This border is 3 inches wide and has a 4-1/2-inch repeat. Sew A and B together. Turn C on point. To the lower left edge, sew AB. To the opposite upper right edge, sew BA. The border is joined by sewing ABCBA units diagonally to each other for the corner unit -- sew D and B together. Sew DR and B together. Sew DBDRB together. To the B edges, add C. Sew the border strips to the quilt edge, stopping and starting 1/4-inch from each end of the quilt top. Miter the border strips. Note: Pattern C measures 3 inches diagonally.
