Pastel Pears Wall Quilt

Combine a fruit shape with pastel floral fabrics to create a well-balanced design. Use the same cream tone-on-tone for the appliqué foundations and the rectangles and Four-Patch units in the pieced blocks to play up the chain effect. Fabrics are from the Mary Rose Charlotte collection from Quilt Gate.

Assemble Pieced Blocks

1. Referring to Diagram 1, sew together a pink floral 1-5/8x28" strip and a cream tone-on-tone 1-5/8x28" strip to make a strip set. Press seam toward pink floral. Repeat to make a second strip set.

2. Cut strip sets into thirty two 1-5/8"-wide segments (Diagram 1).

3. Referring to Diagram 2, sew together two 1-5/8"-wide segments to make a Four-Patch unit. Press seam in one direction. The unit should be 2-3/4" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 16 Four-Patch units total.

4. Referring to Diagram 3, lay out four Four-Patch units, four cream tone-on-tone 2-3/4x4" rectangles, and a pink floral 4" square in three horizontal rows. Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams toward rectangles. Join rows to make a pieced block; press seams in one direction. The block should be 8-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four pieced blocks total.
