CUTTING OUT

1

From Fabric A (background) cut:

■ Thirty-three (33) 9½in squares.

■ Twelve (12) 9½in x 5in rectangles.

■ Six (6) 10in squares, then cut each square on the diagonal to create twelve triangles.

2

From Fabric B cut one (1) 9½in x 5in rectangle. Cut three (3) 10in squares and then cut each square on the diagonal to create six half-square triangles.

3

From Fabric C cut three (3) 10in squares then cut each square on the diagonal to create six half-square triangles.

6

From Fabric F cut three (3) 9 in x 5 in rectangles. Cut three (3) 10in squares then cut each square on the diagonal to create six half-square triangles.

7

From Fabric G cut three (3) 9 in x 5in rectangles. Cut three (3) 10in squares then cut each square on the diagonal to create six half-square triangles.

8

From Fabric H cut one (1) 10in squares then cut each square on the diagonal to create two half-square triangles.

9

From Fabric I cut four (4) 10in squares then cut each square on the diagonal to create eight half-square triangles.

10

From Fabric J cut two (2) 9 in x 5 in rectangles. Cut three (3) 10in squares then cut each square on the diagonal to create six half-square triangles.

11

From Fabric K cut two (2) 9 in x 5in rectangles. Cut four (4) 10in squares then cut each square on the diagonal to create eight half-square triangles.

12

From Fabric L cut two (2) 10in squares then cut each square on the diagonal to create four half-square triangles.

13

From Fabric M cut two (2) 10in squares then cut each square on the diagonal to create four half-square triangles.

14

From the binding fabric cut nine (9)

2 in x WOF strips.

MAKING THE HSTS

15

Refer to the Layout Diagram to create each HST pair, or choose your own combinations. Sew the HSTs using the following method.

16

Place two triangles, cut from the 10in squares, RST, aligning diagonal edges. Sew them together along the diagonal, being careful not to stretch the bias edge.

17

Press the HST unit open, with seams to one side. Trim each HST unit to

9 in square (Fig A). Make twenty-four (24) two colour HSTs and twelve (12) background/colour HSTs.

MAKING THE RAIL FENCE BLOCKS

18

Take one white and one coloured 9 in x

5in rectangles. Place them RST, and sew them together along one long edge.

19

Press the unit open, pressing seams to one side to complete one Rail Fence block (Fig B). Make twelve (12) of the Rail Fence blocks.

FINISHING THE QUILT TOP

20

Arrange your HSTs and Rail Fence blocks with the remaining 9 in white squares, referring to Layout Diagram.

21

Sew the blocks together in nine-patch units (Fig 1). Then sew the nine-patch units together in rows. Sew these rows together to complete the quilt top.

QUILTING AND FINISHING

22

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

23

Quilt as desired. On the white background, Joanna quilted small overlapping swirls. On the HST units, Joanna quilted an echo of triangular lines. 24

Trim the excess batting and backing level with the quilt top edges and square up the quilt.

25

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

26

Sew the binding to the right side of the quilt, folding a mitre at each corner. Fold the binding over to the back of the quilt and hand stitch in place to finish.

The background is a mass of small overlapping spirals
