Assemble Quilt Center

1.     Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram for placement, lay out 18 Nine-Patch blocks and 18 Snowball blocks in six horizontal rows. Sew together blocks in each row. Press seams in one direction, alternating direction with each row.

2.     Join rows to make quilt center. Press seams open to reduce bulk in seam allowances. The quilt center should be 27-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.

 

Assemble and Add Borders

1.     Sew together one blue floral small triangle and one yellow floral small triangle to make a small triangle-square (Diagram 7). Press seam toward blue floral triangle. The triangle-square should be 2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four small triangle-squares total.

2.     Sew blue floral inner border strips to opposite edges of pieced quilt center. Press seams toward border. 

3.     Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, add a small triangle-square to each end of remaining blue floral inner border strips to make two pieced inner border strips. Sew pieced inner border strips to remaining edges of quilt center. Press seams toward border.

4.     Sew together one blue floral large triangle and one yellow floral large triangle to make a large triangle-square (Diagram 8). Press seam toward blue floral triangle. The triangle-square should be 4" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four large triangle-squares.

5.     Sew yellow floral outer border strips to opposite edges of quilt center. Press seams toward border. 

6.     Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, add a large triangle-square to each end of remaining yellow floral outer border strips to make two outer border strips. Sew outer border strips to remaining edges of quilt center to complete quilt top. Press seams toward border.

 

Finish Quilt

1.     Layer quilt top, batting, and backing. 

2.     Quilt as desired. Patti Trygg machine-quilted meandering leaves in the quilt center and a daisy chain in the inner border. Lemon and leaf designs dance around the quilt center in the outer border.

3.     Use blue print binding strips to bind quilt.
