Quilt Detail The 12" blocks (sewn in Months 1 through 12) represent the Court, with a special 24" center block representing the Queen herself. The applique and checkerboard setting enhance the monthly blocks, creating a true heirloom quilt. The applique flowers are easily created in individual block form, and then they are connected with vines during the quilt construction. Applique can be done by hand or fused a shown on the front cover of the pattern. Finally, the setting checkerboards employ a strip piecing method for a faster finish.

Recommended Rulers: According to the designers, "We use a ruler that makes 4 flying geese at one time (either the Wing Clipper I or the Creative Grids Ultimate Flying Geese). We also found the Creative Grids 4 1/2 " square ruler helpful for squaring up block components".Click on the rulers below to order.
