Promised pattern………

Here is the pattern from the workshop I attended last Monday. The size of the individual squares (you will need 124 individual blocks) can be any size you want them to be. These will, then, be sewn into 31 4-patch units. Measure the size of the 4-patch units and cut 9 solid blocks of the same dimensions. It is easiest to assemble the top half (4 rows of 5 {4-patch + solid square as indicated}) then the bottom half (4 rows of 5 following the pattern for placement). The first cut is the longer (top diagram: cut lower right edge to upper left) and then the second cut (upper right corner through the solid squares diagonally) to form 3 pieces which, when re-arranged, will give you the bottom placement.

The letters will help in the final placement, hopefully. A caution…. the bias edges do end up on the outside edges. Before cutting, the directions suggest drawing a line through the solid squares on the diagonal and stitching either side of the drawn line to help stabilize the final outer edge but I didn’t find this necessary…just being aware of the situation was enough. Let me know if there are any questions regarding this pattern. Enjoy!!!…….

    How interesting! And I have a bin full of batik leftovers from step-daughter’s wedding quilt. Thanks for sharing this pattern! And, I love your vintage flimsy – it really does look just like the 50s fabrics I remember.

    Thank you for the instructions to make that really lovely quilt. It is hard to believe three pieces can end up looking so neat. A great way to use up left overs. I will be putting the ‘recipe’ in my “to do one day” file. Am accumulating quite a fabric stash so should be able to start using it soon. Thanks again Doreen.

      The nice thing about this pattern is you can cut the individual squares any size you want, join them in to a 4-patch unit, measure that unit and cut 9 solid (not pieced) squares that size. Can be a large quilt or small…whatever you have in your stash! Glad this interested you!!! Hugs, Doreen

      Isn’t it!? I finished putting the borders on the one I made at the workshop and I had no problem attaching them to all the bias outside edges that were created. Kept the border strips on top (under the pressure foot) and the quilt top on the bottom (feed dog side). Sewed perfectly. Follow-up post coming shortly!! Glad you were able to stop for a visit! Hugs, Doreen

      Marsha, You exhaust me just reading of your escapades!! I hope to find some quiet time by mid next week. In these last 3 days I got 2 QOV quilted (for guild members) and a smallish sized wall hanging quilted for a friend who is giving it for a wedding gift. Baked hot cross buns and did 3 loads of laundry today. Relaxing tonight!!!! Easter Blessings…..
