Striking Black-and-White Quilt

Opposites attract attention on this mostly black-and-white batiks throw. A splash of red in the sashing and border accents the quilt perfectly!

Assemble and Add the Borders


1. Use a quilter's pencil to mark a diagonal line on the wrong side of the 13 red print 2-7/8" squares.

2. Layer a marked red print 2-7/8" square atop each black print 2-7/8" square. Sew each pair together with two seams, stitching 1/4" on each side of the drawn line (see Diagram 2).

3. Cut a pair apart on the drawn line to make two triangle units. Press each triangle unit open to make a triangle-square (see Diagram 3). Each triangle-square should measure 2-1/2" square, including the seam allowances. Repeat to make a total of 26 triangle-squares.

4. Lay out six triangle-squares and five black print 2-1/2x8-1/2" rectangles in a row. Sew together the pieces to make the top inner border strip.

5. Press the seam allowances toward the triangle-squares. Repeat to make the bottom inner border strip. Sew the top and bottom inner border strips to the short edges of the pieced quilt center. Press the seam allowances toward the border.

6. Lay out seven triangle-squares, six black print 2-1/2x8-1/2" rectangles, and two black print 2-1/2" squares in a row. Sew together the pieces to make a side inner border strip. Press the seam allowances toward the triangle-squares. Repeat to make a second side inner border strip. Sew the side inner border strips to the remaining edges of the pieced quilt center. Press the seam allowances toward the border. The pieced quilt center should now measure 56-1/2x66-1/2", including the seam allowances.

7. Cut and piece the black print 4x42" strips to make the following:
2--4x73-1/2" outer border strips
2--4x56-1/2" outer border strips

8. Sew the short black print outer border strips to the short edges of the pieced quilt center. Then add the long black print outer border strips to the long edges of the pieced quilt center to complete the quilt top. Press all seam allowances toward the outer border.
