Assemble Triangle-Squares

1.    Sew together a light floral triangle and an assorted print, turquoise tone-on-tone, or brown large floral triangle to make a triangle-square (Diagram 1). Press seam away from light floral. The triangle-square should be 4-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 96 triangle-squares total.

2.    Referring to Diagram 2, sew together four triangle-squares in pairs. Press seams toward assorted print triangles. Join pairs to make a Broken Dishes block. Press seam toward top row. The block should be 8-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 24 Broken Dishes blocks total.

3.    Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, lay out Broken Dishes blocks in six rows, rotating every other block 180° so seams abut. Sew together blocks in each row. Press seams in one direction, alternating direction with each row.

4.    Join rows to make quilt center. Press seams in one direction. The quilt center should be 32-1⁄2 ×48-1⁄2" including seam allowances.
