Light Tricks

A fussy-cut ombré print background draws the eye into light spots, making the bright reds and yellows pop off the quilt like 3D shapes. Large floral prints stand out when cut into giant diamonds. Fabrics are from the Scarlet collection by Pamela Mostek and the Shades collection by Kinkame, both for Clothworks.

Assemble Triangle Units

1. Gather four matching gold print A diamonds and eight red print No. 2 B triangles.

2. Sew a B triangle to one edge of an A diamond (Diagram 2). Add a second B triangle to adjacent edge of diamond to make a triangle unit. Press seams toward triangles. Repeat to make four matching triangle units total.

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to make four sets total of four matching triangle units.

4. On wrong side of each triangle unit, mark a dot in each corner where 1⁄4" seam allowances intersect (Diagram 3). The dots indicate where seams should stop and start when units are joined to other pieces.
