CUT­TING OUT

1 From Fab­ric A cut: Thirty six (36) pieces us­ing Tem­plate A.

2 From Fab­ric B cut: Eigh­teen (18) 14¼in squares. Sub­cut along the di­ag­o­nal to make thirty six (36) tri­an­gles. Trim each tri­an­gle us­ing Tem­plate B.

3 From Fab­ric C cut: Thirty six (36) Tem­plate C tri­an­gles, care­fully align­ing the stripes with the long edge of the tri­an­gle.

4 From the bind­ing fab­ric cut: Eight (8) 2½in x WOF strips.

PIEC­ING THE QUILT

5 Take one Tem­plate A piece and one Tem­plate B piece. Fold each piece in half to find the cen­tres of the curves. Place the two pieces RST, match­ing both curved ends and the cen­tres. Pin in place at the marked cen­tres and each end. Ease the fab­ric along the curve be­tween these points and pin in place.

6 Sew along the curve with a in seam al­lowance, be­ing care­ful not to over­stretch the fab­rics. Press the seam to­wards the Tem­plate B piece (Fig 1). Re­peat steps 5– 6 to make a to­tal of thirty six curve units.

7 Take one curve unit and one tri­an­gle piece and fold each piece in half to find the cen­tre. Place the two pieces RST, match­ing the cen­tres. Stitch along the long edge to make a block (Fig 2). Re­peat to make thirty one blocks. Leave the re­main­ing five Tem­plate C and curve units un­sewn. 8 Turn the blocks on their sides and lay out in rows, re­fer­ring to Fig 3 for place­ment. Ar­range the re­main­ing Tem­plate C and curve units at the ends of the rows as shown. Sew the blocks and tri­an­gles in rows, then sew the rows to­gether. Trim the sides of the quilt top,

in out­side the points (Fig 4).

QUILT­ING AND FIN­ISH­ING

9 Cut the back­ing fab­ric in half across the width. Re­move the selvedges and sew the two pieces to­gether us­ing a in seam al­lowance. Press the seam open.

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

11 Quilt as de­sired. Bir­git quilted a sub­tle wave de­sign across the quilt. Trim off the ex­cess bat­ting and back­ing fab­ric and square up the quilt.

12 Sew the bind­ing strips to­gether end-to-end us­ing di­ag­o­nal seams. Press the seams open and trim the dog ears. Fold in half length­ways, wrong sides to­gether, and press. Sew the bind­ing to the right side of the quilt, cre­at­ing a neat mitre at each cor­ner. Fold the bind­ing over to the back of the quilt and hand stitch in place to fin­ish.
