FAB­RICS USED

The print fab­rics are all from the Coy­ote col­lec­tion by Hawthorne Threads.

CUT­TING OUT

1

Cut the print fab­rics as fol­lows:

Fab­ric A – six (6) 5in squares. Fab­ric B – eight (8) 5in squares. Fab­ric C – six (6) 5in squares. Fab­ric D – thirty-two (32) 5in squares. Fab­ric E – ten (10) 5in squares and four (4) 4½in squares. Fab­ric F – four (4) 5in squares.

2

From back­ground fab­ric cut sixty-six (66) 5in squares and one hun­dred and six­teen (116) 4½in squares.

3

From bind­ing fab­ric cut seven (7) 2½in x WOF strips.

PRE­PAR­ING THE HST UNITS

4

Pair each 5in print square with a 5in back­ground square, RST. Mark a di­ag­o­nal line across the re­verse of one square. Sew a ¼in seam par­al­lel to ei­ther side of your line.

5

Cut along the marked line and press open, cre­at­ing two HST units. Re­peat for all the pairs of 5in squares.

6

Trim each unit down to 4½in square. Re­peat for all HST units.

ASSEM­BLE THE QUILT TOP

7

Ar­range the HST units and 4½in squares, as shown in the lay­out di­a­gram, in eigh­teen rows of four­teen squares.

8

Sew each row of squares and HST units to­gether into one strip. Press seams to

one side, al­ter­nat­ing which way you press the seams – first row press to the left, se­cond row press to the right, and so on.

9

Sew rows into pairs, nest­ing the seams as you go. Sew the pairs to­gether un­til the quilt top is com­plete.

QUILT­ING AND FIN­ISH­ING

10

Pre­pare the back­ing by cut­ting in half and sewing to­gether along the long edges. Layer the quilt top, bat­ting and back­ing to­gether and baste. Quilt as de­sired. Our sam­ple was long-arm quilted by Mary Gre­gory (seemaryquilt.com).

11

Sewing the bind­ing strips to­gether into one long length and press in half, wrong sides to­gether. At­tach the bind­ing to the quilt and fin­ish us­ing your pre­ferred method.
