Patchwork Frames One Block Baby Quilt

Patchwork Frames Small Quilt (30.5" square)

I just wanted to write out the measurements I used for the baby-size quilt I made using the patchwork frames block (tutorial here and my post about it here.)  I made this larger version of the mini quilt by adding more frames around the center block.  Here are the instruction to make a 30.5" square quilt with the center being placed off-center within the quilt.

In addition to the fabric for the main block, cut the following:

From background fabric:

2" x 12.5"
4" x 12.5"
2" x 17.5"
4" x 17.5"
3" x 23.5"
5" x 23.5"
3" x 30.5"
5" x 30.5"

From print 1 (first border):

2 pieces 1.5" x 17.5"
2 pieces 1.5" x 19.5"

From print 2 (second border):

2 pieces 2.5" x 19.5"
2 pieces 2.5" x 23.5"

Sew the 12.5" strips to either side of your 12.5" block as shown.

Sew the 17.5" strips to the top and bottom of the center block.

Using the same method of first sewing the smaller strips of each print to the sides and then sewing the larger strips to the top and bottomt, attach the rest of the border pieces.

Quilt and bind as desired.
