the variety of prints in this line will brighten any grey day!!
sanibel quilt
let’s get started…
sanibel fabric
my first step was to separate the floral prints from the rest of the line…
sanibel quilt
I cut 5 inch squares from the prints
sanibel quilt
and sewed them into four patch units
you will need a minimum of 18…sew more to have more variety to chose from…
sanibel quilt
I cut 9.5 inch squares from each of the floral prints
you will need at least 18 of these too
sanibel quilt
I alternated four patch block with a floral block
six squares across and six rows down

I sewed my blocks into rows and then the rows together…
one pressing tip…when sewing the blocks into rows, I pressed my seams toward the floral block

here is my finished top…you can also see the fabrics I selected for my back…

I used a variety of fabrics for the six binding strips…
