    I am completely overwhelmed with what I have to do in cutting out. Can you please help me. I want to do a 4 patch in the centre instead of 9 patch in purple and blue, next lot of colours are blue and cream, next strips are and grey and pink the next and outer colours are black and cream. Thank you

    Hey Derry…the pictured quilt in this post and the one on the website with instructions are different. Notice NO PAISLEY in the one pictured here. But there is in the one in the tutorial.

  3. Derry says:

    I’m already confused. There are six fabrics in the pictured quilt. I can see how a similar quilt could be done with five but this one needs six. Hope the cutting directions are better.

      Hi Derry, we just link to the free patterns and sites. It would be best to ask this question on the designer’s site.
