The reason I call this a double queen is not just that it ﬁts both a double or queen sized bed, but that when it’s reversed it is an incredibly diﬀerent quilt and amazingly enough, the sashing fabric matches the top fabrics and backing fabric beautifully, giving me two very diﬀerent quilts.
57 Double Queen Quilt Directions Take your time on a quilt this size, separating the three basic sections into smaller and manageable sections: • Separate the cuts, doing one or two cuts at a time • Layering, smoothing and pinning • Use one thread a day, in two or three places on each square, for the quilting • Cutting the binding and sashing strips and For your sashing follow the cutting diagram for a larger sized quilt. Be sure to roll the extra bulk of fabrics as you are doing the decorative stitching on the sashing, and support all of the quilt so that the stitches don’t become distorted.
