Here is a diagram of the step I skipped
This shows the 5 1/4 " square and instructs you to cut both ways diagonally. For my quilt I only cut one way yielding bigger squares. So, instead of 4" squares you would get 6" squares and instead of the quilt being 40" x40" it is 48" x 48". The amount of squares in the original is 100 and mine is 48.
I fell in love with this quilt on the Purl Bee because I adore the color scheme of the Kiyohara Linen Blend solids and have enjoyed working with this fabric previously. While cutting and piecing this top I imagined a whole children's line in this beautiful fabric. It has such a soft hand and would make gorgeous spring/summer clothing.
Well, now that the quilt top is finished I will soon begin the process of hand quilting it.
