We've recreated this stunning quilt in colors very close to the original. The key to the appeal of this quilt is the scrappy look that uses both red and white fabrics as well as red and cream fabrics. The Fabric Essentials kit uses fabrics that are almost identical to the ones shown in the pattern.
Top + Binding Kit Includes: * Flying Free pattern * All fabrics for the top and binding. There is enough fabric to make either the small (6 1/2" blocks) or medium (7 1/2" blocks) quilt.

Required X-Blocks Rulers: This quilt requires the use of two X-Blocks rulers (6 1/2" and Mini-6.5 OR 7 1/2"and Mini-7.5). The X-Blocks rulers are sold separately. Scroll to see Suggested Products below.
To make an X-Blocks quilt, you first build your nine-patch blocks. The X-Blocks ruler is then positioned on the nine-patch and your X-Block is cut. The unusual Wedge Border is created from the Cut-offs from your nine-patches! If you look closely at the picture below, you can figure out how the nine-patches were created. As you can see, some tilt to the right, and some tilt to the left. This is done by flipping your X-Blocks ruler for half of your blocks.
One of the things we love about X-Blocks rulers is the amazing variety of designs that you can make with them! We all have tools in our sewing room that are used only once or twice. However, with X-Blocks rulers, we have used them over and over to create wonderful quilts. Click here to see more X-Blocks patterns and books.
