Quilt measures approximately 23″ x 23″
To make the quilt you will need:
For EACH block (there are 4 blocks in the quilt)
3 1/2 ” x 3 1/2″ piece for center of block
Four 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ pieces from background fabric (in this case it’s white)
Two 4″ x 4″ pieces of fabric for larger points in blocks
4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of fabric for smaller points in blocks
4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ piece of background fabric
For the Quilt Assembly you will need:
Nine 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ squares of fabric (mine are in two different colors)
Twelve 2 1/2″ x 10″ strips of fabric for sashing
1/4″ yard of fabric for binding
1 yard fabric for backing
Note; photos are from a previous project, the technique is EXACTLY the same.
Layer your 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ pieces on top of each other, right sides facing. Draw a line down the center diagonally on one of the pieces of fabric, on the wrong side of the fabric.
Stitch 1/4″ on each side of the line.
Cut in half along the line.
Press open, pressing seam towards the dark side, you know have 2 Half Square Triangles.
Trim to a 4″ x 4″ square.
Layer one of your sewn HST on top of one of your 4″ pieces of fabric, right sides facing. Draw a diagonal line in the opposite direction of the sewn seam on the half square triangle you just created.
Stitch 1/4″ on each side of the line you drew. Cut into two pieces along the line. Press. Trim to 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
Assemble your block according to the diagram.
A note about the direction of the larger point pieces. I on purpose had my points facing different directions, you can assemble yours as you like. Since two of my blocks had the exact same fabrics, I was able to “move” them a round a bit.
Repeat steps one and two until you have 4 sewn blocks.
You are now ready to assemble your quilt.
I think it is easiest to stitch it together one row at a time.
The first row will have one corner pieces, a sashing strip, a corner piece, a sashing strip and a corner piece.
The second row will have one sashing strip, one block, one sashing strip, one block and one sashing strip.
and so on and so forth..
Press your seams to one side in alternating directions. For example press the odd rows to the right and the even rows to the left.
Then stitch your rows together.
Refer to the diagram as necessary to assemble your quilt.
Quilt and bind as desired.
