Assemble Triangle-Squares

1. Sew together a green print triangle and an aqua print No. 1 triangle to make a triangle-square (Triangle-Square Diagram). Press seam toward darker triangle. Triangle-square should be 6-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.

2. Repeat Step 1, pairing triangles as listed below, to make the following triangle-squares:

• 16 green print triangles and 16 aqua print No. 1 triangles to make 16 green-aqua triangle-squares total

• 12 red print No. 1 triangles and 12 aqua print No. 1 triangles to make 12 red-aqua triangle-squares

• 32 aqua print No. 1 triangles and 32 red print No. 2 triangles to make 32 aqua-red triangle-squares

• 28 red print No. 2 triangles and 28 light green print triangles to make 28 red-light green triangle-squares

• 24 aqua print No. 2 triangles and 24 light green print triangles to make 24 aqua-light green triangle-squares

• 20 aqua print No. 2 triangles and 20 white print triangles to make 20 aqua-white triangle-squares

• 8 red print No. 3 triangles and 8 white print triangles to make 8 red-white triangle-squares

Assemble Quilt Top

Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, lay out triangle-squares and assorted print squares in rows. Sew together pieces in each row. Press seams in one direction, alternating direction with each row. Join rows to make quilt top. Press seams in one direction.

Finish Quilt

1. Layer quilt top, batting, and backing; baste.

2. Quilt as desired. Machine-quilter Connie Gresham stitched an allover snowflake and loop pattern.

3. Bind with red print No. 4 binding strips.
