This lovely quilt, designed by Sandy herself, is created from 25 Ruby blocks in the centre with a gorgeous scalloped border and corner block detail.
Ruby is one of Sandy’s favourite English paper pieced designs. This beautiful block is her interpretation and combination of two varied ‘Strawberry’ blocks published in 1929/1930 as being designed by Ruby McKim at that time, and archived by Jinny Beyer in her book ‘The Quilters Album of Patchwork Patterns’.
This quilt combines the English paper piecing patchwork method, and applique. Follow Sandy’s instructions to guide you through all steps, including piecing curved EPP seams, and enjoy lots of fussy cutting along the way.
You will be delivered over 130 different Reproduction fabrics, of the highest quality, along the BOM journey. All the fabrics will be chosen by Sandy, in the same flavour as seen here in the original quilt, but rest assured, all the photos accompanying blocks will show the block created in exactly the fabrics in your kit, as Sandy will be creating the quilt ahead of the BOM 🙂
