Quilt Assembly:

Quilt Center: Please refer to the quilt photo for the placement of fabric colors and the quilt layout.

  1. The first section: sew one long rectangle (24-1/2” x 5”) to a small rectangle (12-1/2” x 5”) sew this to one more long rectangle forming a complete section. Sew 4 of these sections.
  2. The second section: sew 5 small rectangles (12-1/2” x 5”) end to end forming a complete section. Sew 4 of these sections.
  3. The third section: sew 3 small rectangles (12-1/2” x 5”) together to form a rectangle square. This should measure 12-1/2” x 14”. Sew 2 of these rectangle squares side by side matching seams and sew to the 14” side of the large square. Sew 2 more rectangle squares and sew to the other 14” side of the large square. Sew 2 of these sections.
  4. The fourth section: sew a large square to a rectangle square (3 small rectangles 12-1/2” x 5” sewn together). Sew another large square, then a rectangle square and finish the section with a large square. Make one of these sections for the center section of the quilt.
  5. Sew each section together matching seams to form the center of your quilt.

Quilt Border:

  1. Sew each side border (10-1/2” x 76”) to center of quilt. Sew corner block (10-1/2” x 10-1/2”) to top quilt border strip (10-1/2” x 25-1/2”), sew to middle block (10-1/2” x 10-1/2”), sew another top quilt border strip (10-1/2” x 25-1/2”), and then finish by sewing a corner block (10-1/2” x 10-1/2”). Sew this row to the top of your quilt and repeat for the bottom of your quilt.
  2. Bind with your favorite fabric from the Ivy Trellis Collection.

As an added pointI do see the squares in the top and bottom of the border in the original photo in my email but not in the photo of the directions. But still am puzzled about the size of the squares that are listed in the in directions as to be cute at 12.5 X 14.

I was going to try to make this but the directions have me puzzled. In the cutting directions it says for the quilt border to cut 10.5 squares for the top and bottom of the borders. I do not see where the photo shows squares in the border. It also states in the cutting directions for the quilt to cut a square 12.5 x 14. That would not be a square and it is hard to tell in the picture of the quilt if it is a square or a rectangle and definitely hard to know the exact dimensions of it. Is there an update somewhere with corrections made? Thank you for your help in resolving these issues.
