I am so excited to be sharing another quilt tutorial. 2nd one this year. I’m on a roll. LOL. This quilt is made with Riley Blake’s new fabric collection Goldilocks. With its large blocks it is a quick sew and can easily show off small or large scale prints. Perfect for a fast gift or great thrown across the back of the couch. Now let’s get quilting!
Supplies: (finished size 57″x 69″) (all seam allowances 1/4″)
1/3 yard of 7 prints
1 yard sashing
1 yard border fabric
3 1/2 yards backingTime to cut- from 2 of the prints will you need to cut 24 squares at 3.5″. From the next 5 strips cut 3 rectangles at 10.5″ x 11.5″. (from one strip you will need to cut 4 rectangles.) From the sashing fabric you will need to cut 32 rectangle at 1.5″ x 3.5″, 28 rectangles at 1.5″ x 11.5″ and 16 strips to 1.5″x width of fabric (we will sub cut these later). From your border fabric cut 7 strips to 4.5″ x WOF. Cut binding to your fave size. I prefer 2.25 and I always do bias binding.
STEP A-Attach a 1.5″ x 3.5″ sashing strip to one of 3.5″ print squares. You will make a row of 3 swuares with 2 sashing strips. Make 8 with one combo and 8 with the other combo.STEP B-Take your 10.5″ x 11.5″ print square and sew a 1.5″x 11.5″ sashing strip to one side. Repeat with all 16 blocks.
STEP C-Then attach your 3 print square unit from step A to your unti from step B. Press flat you should have 16 unit C’s now. STEP D-Lay your unit C’s out how you want them. Sew them into rows with a 1.5″x 11.5″ sashing strip between each block. Press flat.To make your vertical sashing strips take your left over 1.5″ x WOF strips and sew them end to end on the bias. Cut 5 strips the length of your rows you made in STEP D. Sew a strip between each row and on the out sides. Cut 2 strips the width of the quilt after you have sewn in all your vertical sashing strips.Sew your border strips end to end and cut strips the length of the middle of your quilt and attach to the 2 long sides. Press flat. Then cut 2 more strips the width of the middle of the quilt. Sew on and press flat.
