Finished Quilt size as shown: 75" x 75"
The BLUEBERRY HEAVEN quilt features nine pieced Star Stairway blocks and four Double Fourpatch blocks. The diagonal set includes wide lattices, Fourpatch cornerstones, and large-scale floral setting triangles. Two large-scale print borders complete the design.
Step-by-step instructions guide you through the quiltmaking process. Rotary cutting and machine piecing techniques used in this pattern call for the Precision Trimmer 3 ruler designed by Marsha McCloskey. Templates are provided for checking purposes and for quilters who prefer more traditional piecing methods.

Precision Trimmer 3 ruler
| Precision Trimmer 3This 3-1/2" square ruler was designed by Marsha McCloskey to measure from the center. Make extremely accurate 4-triangle squares by first cutting the triangles larger than they need to be, then stitching the triangles to make a square. Center the Precision Trimmer 3 on the sewn unit and trim the edges to the perfect size. |
