Block Construction:

For each block 1:

  1. Piece alternate 2-1/2” squares from fabrics A and B until you have five together, as shown in BLOCK 1 Diagram. Make another like this.
  2. Join together two fabric B 4-1/2” by 2-1/2” strips with one fabric A 2-1/2” square in the middle. Piece the block, inserting two fabric E strips in the middle as shown in the BLOCK1 Diagram. Make 8 Blocks.

For each block 2:

  1. Draw a vertical line in the center of the fabric D strip (having the strip positioned horizontal in front of you). Now, draw a diagonal line on the same strip from one corner to the matching top vertical line of the strip, as if you were doing a flying goose unit. Draw another diagonal line on the opposite side, (revealing a triangle). These will be your sewing lines.
  2. Place a triangle from fabric F on top of one half of the fabric D strip, aligning one short line of the triangle with the vertical line. Sew, diagonally, 1/4” inside the longest edge line of the triangle. Flip the other fabric F triangle and sew it on the opposite side of the same strip in the same way. You will have a flying goose unit but made with rectangles instead of squares (as shown in BLOCK 2 Diagram). Make another unit like this.
  3. For the center unit of the block, piece consecutively one strip from fabric G, one from fabric C and one from fabric G.
  4. Join the units together following the BLOCK 2 Diagram. Trim “dog ears”. Make 4 Blocks.

For each block 3:

  1. Piece together two quarter square triangles from fabric B making a bigger triangle, (as shown in BLOCK 3 Diagram). Make four units like this.
  2. Now, join together four squares from fabric F as if a four patch block.
  3. Sew each fabric B unit to each side of the fabric F unit. Trim “dog ears”. Make 1 Block.

For each side triangle:

  1. Sew one fabric C 3-3/8” half square triangle to the shorter side of a fabric F strip and later to one fabric C 3” square.
  2. Sew one fabric C 5-7/8” half square triangle to the longest side of a fabric F strip.
  3. Finish adding another fabric C 3-3/8” half square triangle on the corner (as shown in the diagram). Make 8 units.

For each corner triangle:

  1. Sew one fabric C 3-3/8” half square triangle to the shorter side of a fabric F strip and later to another fabric C 3-3/8” half square triangle.
  2. Finish adding another fabric C 6-1/4” quarter square triangle on the corner (as shown to the right). Make 4 units.

Quilt Assembly:

For the center:

  1. Sew two fabric C small triangles to the ends of one fabric G strip. Follow adding the units for the second row as shown in the picture, alternating between the blocks and the sashing.
  2. Complete all the rows in the same way. Then, piece all the rows together as shown in the picture.
  3. Add the four corner units at the end.

For the inner border:

  1. Join enough fabric G strips in order to make a 49-1/8” strip. Make another long strip like this. Sew them along the remaining sides of the top with a 1/4” seam allowance. Press open.

For the outer border:

  1. Join, enough fabric H strips to make a 60” strip. Make another three strips like this.
  2. Sew them along the four sides of the top with mitered corners and with a 1/4” seam allowance. Press open.

Layer, quilt and single bind (1-1/2” strips) with fabric G as desired.

I am so sick and tired of getting these pop-ups on my computer from this site. But I can't get rid of it. I've unsubscribed from everyhting three times already. What the h---do I have to do to get rid of you people?!?

I am making this with other fabrics. Block 2 does not look correct. It says 1 cut of the fabric, from the diagram it looks like it should be 2 cuts and the size does not look correct. All the blocks are 10.5 in square. THis one is 11 3/8 in length. It is not fitting correctly.

Although the pattern is beautiful, finding the fabric is a nightmare!! I think this collection has been discontinued. I have looked everywhere and no one seems to have it. ;o(

Where can I find online all of the fabrics as listed? I would like to make this throw with the given fabrics but cannot find all of them.

This is most gorgeous and I cannot wait to get to feeling better so I can get back to my crafts :o) Sincerely, Karen M. Roth
