Wild Triangle-Squares Wall Hanging

A subtle safari feeling emerges from this wall hanging using the Kalahari collection of Artisan Batiks by Lunn Studios for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. The batiks in the center square have limited contrast, blending for a watercolor effect. To see this project made with different fabrics, see page six.

Assemble Quilt Top

1. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, lay out triangle-squares, green batik 4-1/2” squares, and brown batik 4-1/2” squares in 10 horizontal rows. Rotate triangle-squares as shown so their diagonal seams create diamond shapes, and alternate the green and brown batik 4-1/2” squares in a checkerboard pattern.

2. Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams in one direction, alternating direction with each row. Join rows to make quilt center. Press seams in one direction. The quilt center should be 32-1/2x40-1/2” including seam allowances.

3. Sew rust batik short border strips to long edges of quilt center. Add rust batik long border strips to remaining edges to complete quilt top.
