Cutting the Prairie Point Pinwheel Baby Quilt
In this tutorial I will be using the AccuQuilt Studio 2 and Dies to cut the quilt pieces. Please note that the amount of fabric that I have noted will make 2 baby quilts. If you want to only make one or do not wish to have left over fabric, then you will need to purchase less fabric.
The fabric I am using is called Effie’s Woods by Deb Strain for Moda Fabrics:
Accuquilt Studio 2:
Yardage for 1 Quilt: (All measurements are based on finished seam. Seam allowance has been allowed for.
1 Yard- Main Fabric (12- 10″ Squares)
1 Yard- Secondary Fabric (12- 10″ Squares)
1/2 Yard- Inner Border (2″ Border)
3/4 Yard- Outer Border (4″ Border)
3/4 Yard- Prairie Points (2.5″ Squares folded and pressed into rectangle)
1 Yard – Binding (Based on 2.5″ binding strips)
UNIFINISHED SIZES FOR CUTTING:
Main fabric squares- 10.5″
Secondary fabric squares- 10.5″
Inner Border- 2.5″
Outer Border- 4.5″
Prairie Points- 2.5″ (You will need roughly around 192 pieces) This is a guesstimate as it depends on how you place your points.
Backing- 42″ X 52″ – Leave about 6″ on all sides to account for shrinkage during the quilting process. Once finished, trim the quilt down.
Finished quilt size should be approximately – 36″ X 46″
