Rose of Kaleigh Step 30 – quilt construction

Good morning everyone.

Today is the day we begin to construct our Rose of Kaleigh quilt. There are many ways to do this, so feel free to lay out all your blocks and begin to sew them up in an order that works for you. However, below is a suggested order in which to sew your blocks if you need a bit of direction!

This process will take most of us longer than a week – take your time and enjoy. I can’t wait to see some finished quilts!

Join the pieces together as shown below.
