Fabric selection is key in this quilted wall hanging. The bold multicolor print creates a medallion-style middle and solid black sashing establishes a crisp grid. Fabrics are from the Floral Vignettes collection by Paintbrush Studio for Fabri-Quilt.

Assemble Blocks

Lay out the pieces on a design wall before assembling blocks, then number the pieces with chalk so you can remember where they go when sewing.

1. Referring to Diagram 1, sew together long edges of a black print 4-3/4x5-1/4" rectangle and a pink large floral 4-3/4x5-1/4" rectangle. Press seam toward black print. Sew joined rectangles to a black print 9x51/4" rectangle to make Block A. Press seam toward black print large rectangle. Block A should be 9x10" including seam allowances. Repeat to make a second Block A.

2. Reversing placement of 4-3/4x5-1/4" rectangles, repeat Step 1 to make two B blocks (Diagram 2).

3. Referring to Diagram 3, sew together long edges of a pink print 4-3/4x5-1/4" rectangle and a green print 4-3/4x5-1/4" rectangle; press seam in one direction. Sew joined rectangles to a black print 9x5-1/4" rectangle to make Block C. Press seam toward black print rectangle. Block C should be 9x10" including seam allowances. Repeat to make four C blocks total.

4. Sew together short edges of a green print 4-3/4x5-1/4" rectangle and a pink print 4-3/4x5-1/4" rectangle (Diagram 4). Press seam in one direction. Sew joined rectangles to a black print 4-3/4x10" rectangle to make Block D. Press seam toward black print rectangle. Block D should be 9x10" including seam allowances. Repeat to make four D blocks total.

5. Referring to Diagram 5, lay out two pink small floral 4-3/4x5-1/4" rectangles, one pink-and-green dot 4-3/4x5-1/4" rectangle, and one pink large floral 4-3/4x5-1/4" rectangle in pairs. Sew each pair together. Press seams in opposite directions. Join pairs to make Block E. Press seam in one direction. Block E should be 9x10" including seam allowances. Repeat to make a second E block.

6. Using two green tone-on-tone 4-3/4x5-1/4" rectangles instead of the pink small floral rectangles, repeat Step 5 to make two F blocks (Diagram 6).

Assemble Quilt Top

1. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, lay out blocks and solid black 1x10" sashing rectangles in four rows. Sew together pieces in each row; press seams toward sashing rectangles.

2. Lay out rows and solid black 1x36" sashing strips, using pins or chalk marks to align rows carefully so sashing rectangles line up. Join rows and sashing strips to complete quilt top. Press seams toward sashing strips.
