Instructions to make the Egyptian Quilt

  • Select suitable fabrics. I used yellow and black fabrics.
  • Cut out six pieces of yellow fabric of size 12 x 12 inches (30 x 30cm).
  • Centre, then sew each one of the first six Egypt designs on each piece of fabric.
  • Cut out six pieces of black fabric of size 12 x 12 inches (30 x 30cm).
  • Centre, then sew the egyptf design on each piece of black fabric. Ensure that you leave sufficient space for a border around each design. I suggest 9 x 9 inches (24 x 24 cms).
  • The following instructions are for the border surrounding the first six designs. Figure No. 1 shows the stitches used:-
  • Draw a line 1cm away from the design. Sew along the line using stitch No. 73 L=8.0 W=6.0, stitch density .30 in black Gutermann No. 000.
