Making the Strip Sets

1

⁄2 yard for first border

single fabric. In order for the quilt to be truly scrappy, you will be making more strip sets than usual and will have leftover portions. Don’t try to plan it too much— just let it be very scrappy.

8 yards for backing (pieced widthwise)

11⁄2˝ strips into the following side sets and middle sets.

Digital Printing

Wen Redmond C&T Publishing ePub

PRINTERS

Inkjet printing can be simple, quick, and permanent. The key is combining the best inkjet ink with substrates that are prepared for printing (see Pre-Coats for Digital Printing, and Commercially Prepared Inkjet Fabrics). The examples presented in this book were printed using an Epson Stylus Photo printer with DURABrite and UltraChrome inks, which are pigment inks. These inks are archival, water resistant, fade resistant, and guaranteed to last 200 years.

Basic office utility printers can also be used, and they are generally very reasonably priced. However, the most successful prints on fabric and most substrates are made using color photo printers.

Printers that use dye-based ink are not the best choice for alternative substrates, as they require steam for setting. Laser printers use heat and can ruin experimental substrates. Don’t even try using a laser printer for these projects!

CARRIER SHEETS

Some substrates, such as thinner papers and fabrics, need carrier sheets to bring them through the printer. The main factors to note are the substrate’s absorbency, thickness, and fragility. There are many kinds of carrier sheets. These include plain printer paper, heavy-duty paper, card stock, freezer paper, plastic stencil film, old transparencies, interfacing, paper-backed fusible web, watercolor paper, and even thin flexible plastic chopping boards.

Sashed Squares Quilts

Terrie Sandelin C&T Publishing PDF

Sashed Squares Quilts

◆ FINISHED FOUNDATION:

7 3⁄4˝ × 7 3⁄4˝

◆ TIME:

51⁄2

HOURS

Full-size Sashed Squares foundation pattern is on the pullout.

Been There, Done That, 14˝ × 14˝, Terrie Sandelin, quilted by Vickie Bajtelsmit,

2007. Believe it or not, this geometrically bold design that looks so modern actually re-creates the layout and coloring of an 1820s quilt backing!

MARKING THE FOUNDATION

Although the basic construction of the Sashed Squares foundation is the same as the 13-Square foundation, the tiny pieces of this quilt (those yellow sashing squares finish at 1 ⁄4˝) present a unique challenge for marking the foundation.

Because the sashing strips are 1 ⁄4˝ wide, you can use the printed line of the foundation as the seam allowance guide for the patches that precede them. Draw the seam allowance lines only for the seamlines that follow the sashing patches.

Then place a patch on the first square. Notice how the seam allowance fabric of the previous patch completely covers the sashing strip? Those 1 ⁄4˝ sashing widths mean that if you mark a letter in either the sashing strip or the sashing square, the seam allowance fabric of the previous patch will cover the letter. To avoid this, write the letter in the next patch over. Placing it to the left of the drawn seam allowance line is a good reminder that it applies to the previous patch.
