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
