To the Point
Use a collection of fun fabrics to make this one.
Prepare a template for D/E using pattern given. Cut from strips as directed on pattern. From precut 10" squares: • Cut 2 (17/ 8" x 10") strips from each square. Referring to Figure 1, layer 2 matching strips wrong sides together; cut 2 each E and reverse E (ER) pieces using prepared template. Repeat with all strips to cut a total of 32 each E and ER pieces. • Cut 2 (21/2" x 10") strips from each square. Subcut strips into 4 (21/2" x 41/2") B rectangles each fabric for a total of 64 B rectangles.
From white spaced tiny print:
• Cut 1 (21/2" by fabric width) strip.
Subcut strip into 16 (21/2") C squares. • Cut 6 (17/ by fabric width) strips. Again referring to Figure 1, layer 2 strips wrong sides together to cut 11 each D and reverse D (DR) pieces using prepared template. Repeat with all strips to cut a total of 32 each D and DR pieces.
From turquoise tonal:
• Cut 1 (11/2" by fabric width) strip.
Subcut strip into 9 (11/2") G squares. • Cut 6 (21/4" by fabric width) binding strips.
From white tonal:
• Cut 10 (27/ by fabric width) strips. Subcut strips into 128 (27/ squares. Cut each square in half on 1 diagonal to make 256 A triangles.
From cream print:
• Cut 1 (101/2" by fabric width) strip.
Subcut strip into 24 (11/2" x 101/2") F strips. • Cut 5 (51/2" by fabric width) H/I strips.
COMPLETING THE BLOCKS
1. Sew an A triangle to one short and one long side of D to make an A-D unit as shown in Figure 2; press. Repeat to make 32 A-D units. Repeat with DR pieces to make 32 A-DR units, again referring to Figure 2.
2. Repeat step 1 with E and ER pieces to make 32 each A-E and A-ER units (16 matching pairs each) as shown in Figure 3.
3. Select two A-D units and two matching A-ER units. Join one each unit to make a quarter unit as shown in Figure 4; press. Repeat to make a second quarter unit.
4. Repeat step 3 with A-DR units and matching A-E units to make two reverse quarter units as shown in Figure 5; press.
5. Join one each quarter unit and reverse quarter unit with B to make the top row as shown in Figure 6; press. Repeat to make the bottom row.
6. Sew C between two B rectangles to make the center row as shown in Figure 7; press.
7. Sew the center row between the top and bottom rows to complete one To the Point block as shown in Figure 8; press. 8. Repeat steps 3–7 to complete a total of 16 To the Point blocks.
