Pattern Update Installment #5, Lesson #15 (Feb 2012)

On the Cutting Chart
Black: two borders 10 1/2" x 75" (not 65"), cut parallel to selvedge

Assembly, Step 11
Sew a pieced Four-Patch block made in Lesson #2 to one end of each 75"-long applique border.

NOTE: If you have already cut your borders 65" long, cut two 10 1/2" squares from the Black fabric and sew a square to each of the 65"-long borders on the end opposite the applique.

AMISH WITH A TWIST -- New Background Color Variations!
(The pieced and appliquéd section in these five new colorways are identical,
and they incorporate some of the new CENTENNIAL SOLIDS colors introduced in May/June 2012.
Each offers a unique alternative to the bolder colors used in the original version.)
