STEP 3:
Fold sides towards the center along top and bottom points and pin. Machine stitch in place as far as possible along edgestitch end as shown. Hand stitch remaining opening to the point.

Super versatile cotton blender prints are the foundation of any quilting project. Quilt designs use blenders for sashing, backing and binding. By definition, they’re tone-on-tone small scale prints that read as a solid and coordinate with or accentuate larger focal prints. These basic prints come in a wide colour range making them great for all types of projects beyond quilts; like pillowcases, little dresses, crafts and more.
