MAK­ING THE HSTS

7

Pair a Fab­ric A 8in square and Fab­ric B 8in square, RST. Draw two di­ag­o­nal lines from cor­ner to cor­ner, mak­ing an X on the back of one side of each pair. Sew a quar­ter inch on ei­ther side of both lines.

8

Cut through the cen­tre of the square hor­i­zon­tally and ver­ti­cally. Then cut on the drawn lines to make eight Fab­ric A/B HSTs (Fig 1). Press each HST and trim them to mea­sure 3 in square.

9

Re­peat steps 7–8 to make a to­tal of the fol­low­ing:

■ Three hun­dred and eighty-four (384) Fab­ric A/B HSTs.

■ Seventy-two (72) Fab­ric A/C HSTs.

■ Thirty-two (32) Fab­ric B/E HSTs.

PIEC­ING BLOCK A

10

Ar­range HSTs and 3 in squares as shown (Fig 2), in four rows of four squares. Sew into rows and then sew rows to­gether to com­plete each Block A. Re­peat to make a to­tal of twenty (20) of Block A.

PIEC­ING BLOCK B

11

Ar­range HSTs and 3 in squares as shown (Fig 3), in four rows of four squares. Sew into rows and then sew rows to­gether to com­plete each Block B. Re­peat to make a to­tal of six­teen of Block B.

PIEC­ING THE BOR­DERS

12

Sew the Fab­ric A 3 in x WOF strips in pairs along the short edge to cre­ate six border strips. Press seams open, then trim two bor­ders to 3 in x 72 in and four bor­ders to 3 in x 78 in.

13

Ar­range twenty-six Fab­ric A/B HSTs as shown (Fig 4). Sew to­gether and press. Re­peat to make a sec­ond iden­ti­cal border.

14

Sew a 3 in x 78 in Fab­ric A strip to the top and bot­tom of each pieced border from step 13.

AS­SEM­BLING THE QUILT TOP

15

Ar­range all blocks as shown (Lay­out di­a­gram). The cen­tre of the quilt con­sists of six­teen of Block B with the twenty of Block A around the out­side. Sew blocks into rows, press. Sew rows to­gether, press.

16

Sew a 3 in x 72 in Fab­ric A strip to each side of the quilt top. Sew the pieced bor­ders to the top and bot­tom of the quilt top to com­plete.

QUILT­ING AND FIN­ISH­ING

17

Cut the back­ing fab­ric in half across the width. Re­move the selvedges and re-join the pieces with a in seam. Press the seam open.

18

Press the quilt top and back­ing well. Make a quilt sand­wich by plac­ing the back­ing fab­ric right side down, the bat­ting on top, then the quilt top cen­trally and right side up. Baste the lay­ers to­gether us­ing your pre­ferred method.

19

Quilt as de­sired. Jess long-arm quilted this sam­ple us­ing straight lines and feath­ers. 20

Trim off the ex­cess bat­ting and back­ing fab­ric and square up the quilt.

21

Join the bind­ing strips to­gether end-to-end us­ing di­ag­o­nal seams. Press the seams open and trim away the dog ears, then fold in half length­wise, WST, and press.

22

Sew the bind­ing to the front of the quilt, fold­ing a mitre at each cor­ner, then fold it over to the back of the quilt and hand stitch in place us­ing a lad­der or whip stitch to fin­ish.
