Just start with 6" squares of fabric, use 100 percent cotton fabric, pick you favorite color, look on a color wheel, either pick colors of fabrics near your favorite color or opposite, Pick out 5-6 fabrics, cut out abou 10 squares each from each fabric. Lay out squares down in a row alternating squares so you do not repeat 2 next to each other, lay out 5 squares on first row, layout 2nd row alternating so same fabric not next to itself! Lay out 5across and 6down. Lay 1st square on top of second square and sew on the left a quarter inch seam. Continue till you have whole row done. proceed same process for each row. Then lay 1st row on top of second row but make sure seams nest (form an "x" when you look at it) Once you sew the whole row press with an iron, press so the seam lays one way. Proceed with each row the same way. Enjoy your quilt top. Next, layering, next lesson!
