Instructions
Note: All seam allowances are a ¼”(.64cm), unless otherwise noted.

1. Separate Fabrics A thru E and I thru O each into:
Pile A
(1) 3-1/2” x 3-1/2“ (8.89cm x 8.89cm)
(4) 2-1/2” x 2-1/2“ (6.35cm x 6.35cm)
Pile B
(4) 2-1/2” x 3-1/2“ (6.35cm x 8.89cm)

  1. Arrange twelve stacks, each with one Pile A and one Pile B, one for each block center. Pair fabrics that will compliment or contrast with each other. Stitch pieces into rows. Sew rows together. Make a total of twelve block centers.
     
  2. Layout one set of paired fabrics as shown

Step 3

  1. Stitch Fabric Q 1-1/2” x 7-1/2“ (3.81cm x 19.05cm) strips to right and left sides of each block center. Add Fabric Q 1-1/2” x 9-1/2“ (3.81cm x 24.13cm) strips to top and bottom.
    Step 4
  2. Cut each of the 2-3/8” (6.03cm) Fabric P squares in half diagonally.
    Step 5
  3. Sew four Fabric P triangles to sides of each 2-5/8” (6.67cm) Fabrics F, G and H squares to make the number of units indicated.
    Step 6
  4. Sew a G/P unit between two F/P units. Make a total of 17 of these sashing sections.
    Step 7
  5. Sew two G/P units between three sashing sections. Make a total of three sashing strips.
    Step 8
  6. Lay out blocks in four rows of three blocks each in a pleasing manner. Place a sashing section, from step 7, between blocks within each row and a sashing strip, from step 8, between the rows.
     
  7. Sew the blocks and sashing sections together within each row. Sew block rows and sashing strips together to complete quilt center. Sew eight F/P units and seven H/P units together in a row, alternating units, starting and ending with F/P. Make two borders. Stitch these to right and left sides of quilt center. Stitch six F/P units and seven H/P units together in a row, alternating units, starting and ending with H/P. Make two borders. Sew these to top and bottom of quilt center.
     
  8. Cut one 1-1/2” x WOF (3.81cm x WOF) Fabric R strip into two equal lengths. Sew each half-length strip end-to-end with a full-length strip. Add these to the long sides of quilt. Press and trim excess. Stitch remaining 1-1/2” x WOF (3.81cm x WOF) Fabric R strips to top and bottom of quilt. Press and trim excess.

Finishing

  1. Sew the two lengths of backing together along selvage edges creating a two-panel wide backing. Layer the backing, batting and quilt top. Quilt or tie as desired.
     
  2. Prepare binding from ve 2-1/2” x WOF (6.35cm x WOF) Fabric R strips. Sew strips together into one long binding strip. Press strip in half lengthwise.
     
  3. Carefully trim backing and batting even with quilt top.
     
  4. Leaving an 8” (20.32cm) tail of binding, sew binding to top of quilt through all layers matching all raw edges. Miter corners. Stop approximately 12” (30.48cm) from where you started. Lay both loose ends of binding at along quilt edge. Where these two loose ends meet, fold them back on themselves and press to form a crease. Using this crease as your stitching line, sew the two open ends of the binding together right sides together. Trim seam to 1/4” (.64cm) and press open. Finish sewing binding to quilt.
     
  5. Turn binding to back of quilt and blind stitch in place.
