Got the kit for this and the fabrics are awesome! But the instructions are a lot to be desired. Are the measurements on the pattern correct??
In the kit I got the 37 fabric strips are only 4and a half inches wide. This would not work with cutting them 2and a half inches wide. Help please.
Thank you for updating the pattern !!!
What does "setting" material mean??? Also, when can I expect my material to arrive???
Lori, the setting material is the material on the pattern around the Four Patch blocks. These squares are complete squares of material, & triangles to fill in the at the sides of the rows. So this material is used to set the blocks in place with spacing between them. If you get a piece of that material in your block materials, do not use it, as there would be no contrast to ensure the four patch stands out. I live in Australia, & usually receive parcels within three weeks if that helps. Happy quilting.
Hello, I got the material which is beautiful but did not get the pattern to make the quilt. Could you please send it to me. Or let me know what I need to do to get the pattern for the kit. Thank you.
Hi Cheryl, the pattern is downloaded from the Country Sampler page or roll over the picture of the quilt ==> Download pattern will appear. Click when you see it. Alternatively, you can download the pattern from the quilt page ==> click on the words Country Sampler, it will open the quilt page. On the right you will see a box with a picture of the quilt, & underneath that is DOWNLOAD NOW. Save it a folder on you computer. Hope this helps.
Thank you so much for the help. I finally got it together and it is awesome!
You are welcome mooshi. Very glad to have helped. Glad it all made sense to you. Put up a picture of your efforts so we can all enjoy. I am still waiting for mine to arrive in the mail. Can't wait to see the colours & work out the placement.
This quilt looks awesome, however, the directions are the worst I have ever seen!!! They are non-existent. You rate the skill level as beginner and then assume people know how to assemble on the diagonal?? A few helpful hints would have been nice.
Hi mooshi22731662, I agree with your comment. You will notice there is an ass in assume ...... This is certainly not written for a beginner. Just a little hint that I hope will help you. Assemble by rows ... look at a corner and name that Row 1. Work your way across to the opposite corner (diagonal) counting each Row. You will notice that each row is ended with a setting triangle. R1=1 squares, R2=3sqs, R3=5sqs and so on, to the longest diagonal row . You will need to arrange 2 of each Row, & 1 of the diagonal Row. Stitch the squares together to form the Rows, adding the setting triangles to each end, and the corner triangles to the ends of the Diagonal Row & bottom of the two R1s. Then sew each Row together. Basically you are forming strips of the 4 sq Patch & setting squares, then adding setting triangles to the ends of each strip. The diagonal row is the longest & has corner triangles on each end. I find it easier to stitch the rows together in pairs, then join those together. So I start by joining R2+R3, R4+R5, R6+R7 etc. Then stitch these sets together working backwards = R7/6 + R5/4 + R3/2 +R1 with corner triangle. Then I join each set with the long diagonal row & voila, I have a diagonally set quilt top. Hope this little bit of information helps you to understand the setting. I find I automatically see diagonally set quilt tops from one corner to the opposite corner now. It makes a lot more sense to me then looking at them from top to bottom as you would a square set top. Seeing them in rows also helps greatly with the layout and colour placement of the squares. Have fun, hope you enjoy making this wonderful looking quilt. I am hoping to complete mine for my dad for Father's Day. Leanne
Sorry mooshie, the above is the setting for a square quilt top and this one is rectangular. As such, it has 3 longer Diagonal Rows=21sqs. It will make more sense for you if you have the pattern opened (PDF) beside your internet screen (Craftsy) for reference. Adjust the above in the following manner. I have counted the Rows from bottom Right Corner to bottom Left Corner,giving me 2 each of R1 through to R11. You will actually have 3 x R11=21sqs.2 x R11 have Corner Triangles on the LEFT end + Setting Triangles on the RIGHT end. 1 x R11 has Setting Triangles EACH end. This is now your Diagonal Row that the sets are sewn to. So each set actually contains a CORNER Row, one set is the BOTTOM RIGHT corner, and the other set is the TOP LEFT corner. These are then joined together by the R11 with SETTING TRIANGLES on each end. Apologies again. Hope it comes together for you.
Thank you for the info Leanne. I'm sure I will find it helpful when my material arrives.
So hope you do Lori A, & glad you found them helpful. Hope your quilt turns out to be amazing too.
