Cut Fabrics

Cut pieces in the following order. Note that the corner triangles and the triangles cut to make hourglass units are the same size but are cut differently so the grain lines will be correct in the finished quilt. We recommend labeling all cream floral triangles with their four different names so you don't confuse them while piecing.

From assorted prints, cut:

• 144-2" squares

From cream floral, cut:

• 2-14" squares, cutting each diagonally twice in an X for 8 large setting triangles total

• 1-7-5⁄8" square, cutting it diagonally twice in an X for 4 small setting triangles total

• 8-5-3⁄4" squares, cutting each diagonally twice in an X for 32 triangles total for hourglass units

• 5-5" sashing squares

• 2-4-1⁄8" squares, cutting each in half diagonally for 4 corner triangles total

From brown large floral, cut:

• 8-5-3⁄4" squares, cutting each diagonally twice in an X for 32 triangles total for hourglass units

From brown small floral, cut:

• 8-5-3⁄4" squares, cutting each diagonally twice in an X for 32 triangles total for hourglass units

From mottled pink, cut:

• 8-5-3⁄4" squares, cutting each diagonally twice in an X for 32 triangles total for hourglass units

From mottled brown, cut:

• 6-2-1⁄2×42" binding strips

• 2-1-1⁄2×40-1⁄2" inner border strips

• 2-1-1⁄2×38-1⁄2" inner border strips

From teal floral, cut:

Finish Quilt

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

2. Quilt as desired. Using digitized quilting designs, HQ Studio Educator Vicki Hoth put the most detailed quilting in the areas that are easily seen-the pink and cream fabrics in the quilt center and the teal outer border (Quilting Diagram). "The 36-Patch blocks just cried out for continuous-curve quilting," Vicki says.

3. Bind with mottled brown binding strips.
