Reminders before you begin:
- When cutting strips, I give the number of strips needed for that particular step. You may want to go back through your leftover pieces and see if you can get any of the pieces from them before cutting all the new strips .. just to save fabric.
- If pressing is going to matter in later steps, I will give pressing directions. If it isn’t going to matter (as far as seams nesting), then I give no pressing directions.
- Instructions will be posted Monday, Thursday and Saturday. The blog posts are posted and then I have to manually add the links to the main Road to Llano page and sometimes it takes a day or two for me to get those links added so if you’re wanting the most recent instructions, go to the blog on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.
- Click on the Road to Llano quilt picture on the left sidebar to get to the main Road to Llano page.
- If you are able to keep up with each step, I think you’ll be surprised at how quickly the quilt top goes together.
About the quilt:
- The quilt will finish at about 70″ x 81″
- The blocks are 9″ finished.
Let the fun begin.
The sections we’re making today will be 3-1/2″ unfinished. These will not be meeting up with other pieces where the seams have to match. When you’re finished making them, be sure they’re all exactly 3-1/2″. Trim if necessary.
1. Cut the following pieces:
Fabric 2: 3 – 1-1/2″ strips
Fabric 3: 7 – 1-1/2″ strips – Cut 4 of these into 62 – 1-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ rectangles.
Fabric 4: 10 – 1-1/2″ strips – Cut these into 62 – 1-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ rectangles and 62 – 1-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ rectangles.
Using 3 of the Fabric 2 and 3 strips, make 2-1/2 strip sets. Cut them into 62 – 1-1/2″ segments.
Make 26 of these blocks:

Can you get all of that done by Thursday? Sure you can! 🙂

I’m soooooo excited to start this….Road to Llano is one of the prettiest quilts I’ve seen. I’ll be babysitting all this week but I’ll try to get all these corner blocks done. On quilt-a-longs I’m usually the one who makes 3 or 4 mad dashes to do that many steps at a time to catch up….but it works for my schedule! Thanks so much for taking the time and effort to share this.

Judy, what order are the colors in your purple and green quilt? I can pick out five fabrics, but not six. Thanks!
