welcome to the preparing part of the synchronized squares quilt along yall :)
first things first...
we need to trim all your PRINT layer cake squares down.
your squares will need to be 7 1/2" x 7 1/2"
*do not discard those lovely leftover 2 1/2" strips though*
now we need to trim all your SOLID layer cake squares down.
your squares will need to be perfect 10" x 10" squares.
now's the perfect time to make our binding. <--no groaning!!! :D
if you want a scrappy binding, simply use the discarded 2 1/2" strips from above.
if you want regular binding, simply use 3/4 yards of matching fabric.
now trim those blocks & make that binding.
& we'll meet back up next week.
i can't wait to start seeing yall's pics show up in the flickr pool.
fyi: the flickr pool includes a q&a section for those with lingering questions.
