Sounds Waves

Pump up the volume with bright blocks that look like sound waves when pieced together. A gray background allows the colors to sing the loudest. Fabrics are from the Jasmine collection by Valori Wells for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. Quilting designs courtesy of Handi Quilter.

Assemble A Blocks

1. Referring to Diagram 1, layer a light blue print 2-1⁄2 ×3" rectangle atop bottom end of a dark gray print 2-1⁄2 ×10" rectangle, aligning left-hand and bottom edges. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on light blue print rectangle, beginning at upper left-hand corner and ending where the bottom edge meets the corner of the dark gray print rectangle. Sew on marked line. Trim excess, leaving 1⁄4" seam allowances. Press open to make Unit 1. The unit still should be 2-1⁄2 ×10-1⁄2" including seam allowances.

2. Using dark gray print 2-1⁄2 ×8-1⁄2", 2-1⁄2 ×6-1⁄2", 2-1⁄2 ×4-1⁄2", and 2-1⁄2 ×3" rectangles; dark blue print 2-1⁄2 ×4-1⁄2" and 2-1⁄2 ×8-1⁄2" rectangles; and light blue print 2-1⁄2 ×6-1⁄2" and 2-1⁄2 ×10" rectangles, repeat Step 1 to make units 2, 3, 4, and 5 (Diagram 2).

3. Referring to Diagram 2, lay out one each of units 1–5. Join units to make blue print Block A. The block should be 10-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.

4. Repeat steps 1–3, swapping placement of light blue and dark blue rectangles, to make a second blue print A block (Diagram 3).

5. Repeat steps 1–4 using light gray print rectangles and alternating yellow polka dot and yellow floral rectangles to make two yellow floral A blocks (Quilt Assembly Diagram).

6. Repeat steps 1–4 using light gray print rectangles and alternating yellow print and yellow polka dot rectangles to make two yellow print A blocks (Quilt Assembly Diagram).

7. Repeat steps 1–4 using dark gray print rectangles and alternating dark orange print and light orange print rectangles to make two orange print A blocks (Quilt Assembly Diagram).
