Passage is composed of 48 blocks made from 1 primary block construction.  Initially, strips of fabrics are joined together, which eases the block-making process. Strip sets are cross-cut to make (9) pieced rows.  Strip-piecing provides the means in which to consistently sew 27 patches into a 9-1/4 inch block framework.  Pieced rows are arranged to create 2 blocks:  B1 & B1R.  The quilt is finished with a set of borders that wrap their way around the center.

A quilt is not a quilt until it's quilted!  Many, many thanks to Shawn Leighton for making “Passage” look so good!

Quilt Size:  Approximately 59 x 78 Inches
