Instructions

Step One

 

From each of the 1/3 yard pieces of fabric cut:

  • Cut 1 strip 4 1/2″ x width of fabric (wof. ) Sub-cut into (8) 4 1/2″ squares for a total of 96 (You’ll need 84 for this project.)
  • Cut 1 strip 6″ x wof. Sub-cut into (6) 6″ squares for a total of 72.

From each of the 1/4 yard pieces of fabric cut:

  • Cut 1 strip 6″ x wof. Sub-cut into (6) 6″ squares for a total of 12.

Cut each of the squares in half  on the diagonal to yield 2 triangles.

 

Step Two

Arrange pieces for each block in a pile. For each block you’ll need (1) 5″ charm square, (4) identical small triangles, cut from (2) 4 1/2″ squares and (4) identical large triangles, cut from (2) 6″ squares.

Step Three

Use a 1/4″ seam allowance throughout.

Sew the long side of (2) small triangles to two sides of the charm square.

Press towards triangles.

Add remaining (2) small triangles to the remaining sides of the charm square.

Press towards triangles.

Step Four

Lay your square ruler over the block

Step Five

 

Sew large triangles to block, using the same method as above.

Square up your quilt block to 9 1/2″

Step Six

Lay out your blocks in 6 columns, with 7 blocks in each column for a total of 42.

Sew the quilt together in rows. Sew rows together to create your quilt top.

Baste and quilt your quilt.

Cut binding fabric into (6) 2 1/2″ strips. Join strips together to create at least 240″ of continuous binding.  Fold strip in half, wrong sides together and press. Bind your quilt and enjoy!
