Out of the Blue

A range of blues from light to medium to dark forms a grid look in this wall hanging. Dark floral squares emerge from assorted lighter blues to give the project depth. Fabrics are from the Indigo Blues collection by Pine Tree Country Quilts for Fabri-Quilt.

Assemble Blocks


1. Use a pencil to draw a diagonal line on wrong side of each blue geometric print 2" square.

2. Align a marked blue geometric print square with one end of a blue small floral 2x5" rectangle (Diagram 6; note direction of drawn line). Stitch on drawn line, then trim, leaving 1⁄4" seam allowance. Press open attached triangle, pressing seam toward blue small floral, to make a left point unit. Repeat to make 16 left point units total.

3. Using blue scallop print instead of blue small floral, repeat Step 2 to make 16 right point units (Diagram 7; note direction of drawn line).

4. Join left and right point units to make a side unit (Diagram 8). Press seam toward left point unit. The unit should be 3-1⁄2x5" including seam allowances. Repeat to make 16 side units total.

5. Draw a diagonal line on wrong side of each dark blue tone-on-tone 2" square.

6. Align a marked dark blue tone-on-tone square with one corner of a light blue floral 3-1⁄2" square. Stitch on drawn line then trim, leaving 1⁄4" seam allowance (Diagram 9). Press open attached triangle, pressing seam toward light blue floral. In same manner, add a second marked dark blue tone-on-tone square to opposite corner of light blue floral square. Add marked dark blue tone-on-tone squares to remaining corners, pressing seams toward dark blue tone-on-tone instead, to make a Square-in-a-Square unit. Repeat to make four Square-in-a-Square units total.

7. Referring to Diagram 10, lay out four corner units, four side units, and one Square-in-a-Square unit in three rows. Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams toward side units. Join rows to make a block. Press seams away from middle row. The block should be 12-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four blocks total.
