Tilt-a-whirl

This unique block gives the il­lu­sion of off­set sash­ing when in fact it is in the block it­self. The color choices say fresh-squeezed orange juice meets the ocean.

Here’s a Tip

The trick with this fun and sim­ple quilt is to press the seams in the aqua blocks to­ward the aqua and in the orange blocks to­ward the white as much as pos­si­ble. That will make the seams nest and match eas­ier when putting the quilt top to­gether.

2. Ar­range and join two Orange Tilt and three Aqua Tilt blocks to make an aqua row, re­fer­ring to the As­sem­bly Di­a­gram for po­si­tion­ing of blocks. Re­peat to make a to­tal of three aqua rows.

3. Ar­range and join the rows, al­ter­nat­ing rows re­fer­ring to the As­sem­bly Di­a­gram to com­plete the quilt cen­ter; press.

4. Join the C/D strips on the short ends to make a long strip; press. Sub­cut strip into two 3" x 601/2" C strips and two 3" x 771/2" D strips.

5. Sew C strips to the top and bot­tom and D strips to op­po­site sides of the quilt cen­ter; press seams to­ward strips.

6. Sew E strips to op­po­site long sides and F strips to the top and bot­tom of the quilt cen­ter to com­plete the quilt top; press seams to­ward strips.

7. Cre­ate a quilt sand­wich re­fer­ring to Quilt­ing Ba­sics on page 110.

8. Quilt as de­sired.

9. Bind re­fer­ring to Quilt­ing Ba­sics on page 110 to fin­ish. l
