Blue Ocean Waves

Serene aquas and cool blues rule in quilt tester Laura Boehnke's tranquil wall hanging made with the Spa collection from Timeless Treasures. Soft prints and large floral fabrics result in Ocean Waves blocks with less defined edges, adding to the relaxed feel of the piece. Although you'll be able to make the 44-1/2"-square quilt in a hurry, its calm colors invite you to slow down and simply enjoy the process.

Assemble Border Units

1. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each blue print 6-1/2" square.

2. Referring to Diagram 4, align a marked blue print square with left-hand end of an aqua print 6-1/2 x8-1/2" rectangle; note direction of drawn line. Sew on drawn line, then trim excess, leaving 1/4" seam allowance. Press open attached triangle to make a border unit A. The border unit still should be 6-1/2x8-1/2" including seam allowances.  Repeat to make eight total of border unit A.

3. Repeat Step 2, placing marked square on right-hand end of aqua print rectangles, to make eight total of border unit B (Diagram 5).

4. Join a remaining blue print large triangle and an aqua print large triangle to make a large triangle-square (Diagram 6). Press seam away from aqua print. The large triangle-square should be 6-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four large triangle-squares total.
