But if a Double Wedding Ring isn’t for you, we’ve got you! The Spring 2019 Sampler is a beginner-friendly option for setting the 36 Paducah Sewalong blocks. Each block has a frame that is sized once added so every block comes out the right size without losing points and it works if a block comes out large or small.

You can even take it a totally different direction with a dark background!

Sew a background 1 3/4″ x 8 3/4″ rectangle to the top and bottom of the block. Measure 4 1/4″ from the center of the block and trim. Repeat on all sides to size the block with the frame to 8 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ unfinished.

Sew the rows without background squares on the end to the left and right side of the quilt center. Then sew the remaining rows to the top and bottom of the quilt to complete the sashing border. Quilt measures 57 1/2″ x 57 1/2″ unfinished with sashing border.

Inner Border

Note: If your quilt doesn’t measures smaller than 57 1/2″ square after adding the sashing border, cut the (6) 2″ x WOF strips wide enough to size the quilt. The quilt needs to be 60 1/2″ square after adding the inner border.

Sew together the (6) 2″ x Width of Fabric strips into one continuous piece of fabric. Measure the quilt on the left and right side and through the middle. Add the three measurements and divide by 3 to average these measurements, this average measurement should be approximately 57 1/2″ long. Cut two strips that average measurement length. Sew the strips to the left and right side of the quilt center.

Repeat the measurement step for the top, bottom and middle of the quilt and average. Average should be approximately 60 1/2″ long. Cut two strips this measurement length and sew to the top and bottom of the quilt center.

If your quilt is larger than 60 1/2″ at this step, trim it to size. This is important for adding the Flying Geese border in the next step.

Flying Geese Border

Mark the wrong side of the background 6″ squares in half diagonally once and a quarter inch from both sides of the marked center line.

Lay two marked background squares over a dark purple 11 1/2″ square in diagonally opposite corners. Sew on the marked quarter inch lines as shown below.

Cut apart on the marked center line. Press. There will be two units that look somewhat like a fox head. Lay a marked background square over the dark purple triangle and sew on the quarter inch lines as shown below. Repeat on the other “fox head.”

Cut apart and press. Repeat with the remaining 11 1/2″ squares in purple, periwinkle, dark turquoise, lime, and light lime to make 4 Flying Geese of each color.

If you’d like to see this method in action, watch the video below.

Trim the Flying Geese to 5 1/2″ x 10 1/2″ unfinished as demonstrated in the video below.

Using one of each color Flying Geese, sew together a row of six Flying Geese as shown below. Row measures 5 1/2″ x 60 1/2″ unfinished, make 4.
