  • 4 yds (3.7m) backing fabric cut into qty 2- 2 yard pieces

  • Coordinating Coats & Clark Dual Duty XP® all-purpose thread

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

  1. The quilt has a very scrappy look so there is no rightand wrong way to make the blocks. There are 8 different kinds of blocks. The directions will tell you the size of all the pieces that make up the block and how they will fit together. They will also tell you how many of each block you should make. You choose which of the fabrics to use in each block. Just remember to mix it up and use them all.
  2. Cut 1 yd (91.4cm) from the binding  fabric before cutting out any of the blocks.
  3. Blocks are all 8 ½”x 8 ½” (21.6 x 21.6cm) unfinished.

Block ABlock BBlock C

Block DBlock E

Block G

Block H




  1. Arrange the blocks as shown in the diagram below. You can rotate any of the blocks to make it pleasing. Sew the blocks together in rows and then sew the rows together to make the quilt.

Step 4

Finishing the Quilt

  1. Sew the 2 backing pieces together along the selvedge edge. Press the seam to one side.
  2. Layer the backing, batting, and quilt top. Quilt byhand or machine as desired.
  3. Using the one yard of fabric set aside for the binding, cut approximately 285” (724cm) of continuous bias binding in any width you’d like up to 3” (7.6cm). There are some excellent videos showing you how to do this on the internet.
  4. Fold the binding in half, lengthwise, with wrong sides together and press. Sew the raw edges of the binding to the edges of the right side of the quilt. Turn the folded edge of the binding to the back side of the quilt and stitch in place by hand, mitering the corners.

I really like this quilt. The block patterns make it ameanable to a coordinated fabric selection or a color way of scrap fabrics. I see this as a great stash buster
