TRUE BLUE KATZ - Quilter’s Trek 2020 -
A note from Purple Katz Quilting
”Welcome and thanks for participating. We are excited to be a part of this fabulous adventure. 
 
All seams are 1/4”. You will copy the templates onto Carol Doaks FPP paper or plain copy paper  you can make one of each block or make a whole quilt. You will need a template copied for each block you make. 

When you are FPP, it is advised to set your stitch length to a shorter stitch. I set my Bernina to 1.5. I use an Add-A-Quarter Ruler to assist in the seam allowance cutting as well. 

Each block has templates marked A-B-C and within each template they are numbered 1-2-3. You will start with A and progress through the template numerically.  I have posted a video on my Facebook PAGE showing the basic instructions. If you require further instructions or if you are unfamiliar with FPP we have provided a link to an amazing paper piecing pattern designer: VIOLET CRAFT.

The Quilter’s Trek event called for four blocks, but I have added fabric for you to sew a 1” sashing and borders if so desired. Cut 1.5” strips and add to your blocks if you plan on adding borders. 

We hope you enjoy and please share your finished pictures with us!
 
Thank you,
The Purple KATZ Team “
