Big Print Wall Hanging

A bright and bold wall hanging mixes graphic prints from the Del Hi collection by Valori Wells for FreeSpirit. Turning two of the identical blocks 90 degrees (the upper right and lower left) creates the effect of a kaleidoscope that seems to shape-shift before your eyes.

When joining pieces A, B, and C, be sure to align marked matching points. To do this, push a pin through center of dots when pieces are layered.

1. Referring to Diagram 1, sew together a red print A piece and a brown print B triangle to make a narrow pieced triangle. Press seam toward brown print. Repeat to make 16 narrow pieced triangles total.

2. Aligning marked matching points, sew orange and red polka dot C triangles to opposite long edges of a gold print C triangle (Diagram 2). Press seams toward polka dot triangles.

3. Add a pink print C triangle to remaining edge of Step 2 gold C triangle to make a wide pieced triangle (Diagram 3). Press seam toward pink print triangle.

4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to make 16 wide pieced triangles total.

5. Sew together a narrow pieced triangle and a wide pieced triangle to make a triangle pair (Diagram 4). Press seam toward wide pieced triangle. Repeat to make 16 triangle pairs total.

6. Sew together two triangle pairs to make a half unit (Diagram 5). Press seam toward wide pieced triangle. Repeat with remaining pairs to make eight half units total.

7. Join two half units to make a center unit (Diagram 6). Press seam in one direction. Repeat to make four center units total.

8. Add a red-and-tan print triangle to a corner of a center unit; press seam toward red-and-tan print. Repeat with remaining corners of center unit to make a block (Diagram 7). The block should be 12-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four blocks total. {C}
