Step One

Ink up your stamps, I chose to use Ann Butler Checks Square, with Tangleo color ink. I started by placing the first image in the upper left corner of 1 piece of fabric, leaving 1″ at the top edge and left edge.

Note: Use a baby wipe to clean the stamps off between colors.

Step Two

Using the Basket Triangle stamp 2 triangles with Limelight on the right side and bottom edge of the first stamped image.

Note: Re-ink the stamp before each impression.

Step Three

Stamp two more triangles using Tangleo ink, next to the first 2 triangles to create 2 squares.

Step Four

Ink up the Checks Square with Limelight and stamp 3 times next to the triangle squares and once below the last triangle square.

Step Five

To finish of the top row ink up the Picnic Square with Berry and stamp it next to the top Limelight Square.  Stamp a second Picnic Square using Ocean Breeze placing it below the top Limelight Square and next to the middle Limelight Square.  Ink up the Picnic Square with Berry and stamp it below the middle Limelight Square and next to the last Limelight Square.  Finish off with a Picnic Square in Ocean Breeze by placing it below the last Limelight Square.

Step Six

Repeat steps 4, 3, 2, and 1 to finish off the pattern.

Step Nine

Machine stitch between the squares and diagonally through the squares.  Then stitch around the outside edge of the stamped images, this will be used as a guide in the next step.

Step Ten

Fold one edge of one of the remaining pieces of fabric over 1/4″ and iron in place.  Fold a second time to cover the raw edge, press and sew in place.  Repeat with the remaining piece of fabric.

Place right sides facing up of these two pieces of fabric and overlap the finished edges approximately 8″.  Then, place the stamped/quilted layer on top with right sides facing.

Stitch around the outer edge using the guide you created in the last step as your guide.  Trim as needed.
