Instructions for Preparing a Machine Quilting Sampler

You will need a 20″ square of fabric for the quilt top and a 22″-24″ square of batting and backing fabric. Each “block” in the sampler is 6″ x 6″.

Measure and draw nine 6″ squares as follows, leaving a 1″ margin around the edges.

If you prefer, you can leave 1/4″ between the 6″ squares as I did.

Mark the Machine Quilting Practice Motifs on the quilt top as follows (click on the link to access the PDF file):

Layer with the batting and backing fabric and baste. Use a walking foot to machine quilt the lines between the blocks.
