Setting the Yankee Diary Quilt


Yankee Diary by Barbara Brackman
42" x 54"
Quilted by Lori Kukuk


Yankee Diary by Denniele Bohannon

Here's how Denniele and I set ours

Here are the setting instructions for the Yankee Diary quilt. As we've sewn along you've received setting instructions for the blocks but here's a summary. Do refer back to each block pattern for more information.

The basic set is two sections, top and bottom.

The top section is made of of 3 strips.


Top left

Top Center

Top Right




The bottom section is two rectangles

Refer to Block 11 for instructions for placing the flag in the dog's mouth.

Bottom left

Bottom Right

The only extra piece you need for my set is
a strip cut 12=1/2" x 3-1/2" that goes below the flag



Becky Brown's set is a little bit different using all the parts.
She has a checkerboard in the lower left corner
which I forgot to put in.

Next Wednesday: Borders.  Nope. Next Wednesday fabric requirements and setting for next year's
Antebellum Album Block of the Month.

Borders for this one and the rest of Carrie's story on January 10.

Love how they are all very different and yet the same. Thank you for this one. It was fun, interesting, and challenging at the same time.
