PIEC­ING THE MINT BLOCKS

39

Add an H CST to one K piece and an L CST to one N piece (Fig 20). Join these two units, then add a B piece to the top and an A piece to the left side (Fig 21). Re­peat to make a sec­ond iden­ti­cal unit.

40

Add an L CST to one end of an N piece. Join piece F to one side as shown (Fig 22). Make one HST us­ing G piece and M piece squares. Add a D CST to one J piece. Join a piece E to the side of the J/D unit as shown. Then sew to the HST (Fig 23). Add a D CST to an I piece. Join a C piece to the bot­tom of this unit (Fig 24).

41

42

Ar­range the four units as shown in the Mint Lay­out Di­a­gram. Sew to­gether in pairs, then sew the pairs to­gether to com­plete one Mint block. Make a to­tal of six Mint blocks.

PIEC­ING THE COOKIE BLOCKS

43

Add an L CST to the top two cor­ners of a Z piece. Then add an O CST to the bot­tom two cor­ners. Add a K piece to ei­ther side, and a T piece to the top. Add a C CST in the top two cor­ners, then add an I CST in the bot­tom two cor­ners. Sew a B piece to ei­ther side, and an A piece along the top to make the top cookie unit (Fig 26).

44

Add an M CST to a top corner of two U pieces, and an O CST in the bot­tom corner. Sew an N piece to the side. Add a D, W and I CST to each unit. Join the two units with a V piece be­tween and add an F piece to each side (Fig 27). This com­pletes the top cen­tre cookie unit.

45

Add a P CST to the top of two X pieces. Then add W and O CSTs to op­po­site cor­ners as shown (Fig 28). Add E and I CSTs to two Q pieces as shown (Fig 29). Join the two X units with a Y piece be­tween, and then add an R piece to the bot­tom. Add the Q pieces to ei­ther end, and then a G piece to each end (Fig 30). This com­pletes the bot­tom cen­tre cookie unit.

46

Add I CSTs to the bot­tom two cor­ners of an S piece. Add a J piece to the bot­tom of this unit. Then add two H pieces to ei­ther side, to com­plete the bot­tom cookie unit (Fig 31).

QUILT­ING AND FIN­ISH­ING

56

Cut the back­ing fab­ric in half across the width. Re­move the selvedges and sew the two pieces to­gether us­ing a in seam. Press the seam open.

57

Press the quilt top and back­ing well. Make a quilt sand­wich by plac­ing the back­ing fab­ric right side down, the bat­ting on top, then place the quilt top cen­trally and right side up. Baste the lay­ers to­gether us­ing your pre­ferred method.

58

Quilt as de­sired. An­nie quilted a freemo­tion flo­ral swirl. Trim off the ex­cess bat­ting and back­ing fab­ric and square up the quilt.

59

Sew the bind­ing strips to­gether end-to-end us­ing di­ag­o­nal seams. Press the seams open and trim the dog ears. Fold in half length­ways, wrong sides to­gether, and press.

60

Sew the bind­ing to the right side of the quilt, creat­ing a neat mitre at each corner. Fold the bind­ing over to the back of the quilt and hand stitch in place to fin­ish.
