1 About This Quilt

1 Paula loved Ellie Scrimsher's quilt The Original Thirteen from the Sept/Oct 2015 issue so much that she created her own miniature version of it.

A design wall or large flat surface will come in handy when assembling the quilt top.

Refer to "Fast Flying Geese" in Basic Lessons. Use assorted A's and 4 matching assorted cream B's to make 13 sets of 4 matching Flying Geese as shown.

Refer to "Triangle-Squares" in Basic Lessons. Pair cream tone-ontone C's and red dot C's to make 52 unit 1's.
