My favorite part about making this quilt is I was able to use up tons of 5″ squares that I had lying around for years. This is a perfect scrap quilt or can be used with a collection to make everything coordinate together. This quilt is very versatile.
Start by sewing together three blocks. Then sew you three blocks to three more and then your six blocks to your last row of three blocks to get a larger block of 9 blocks sew together. Do this 12 times. I like to lay out my blocks on the ground in a random pattern so I can see how it looks when it is all done making sure there are not too many darks or lights together but that everything is evenly mixed.
Take at least 6 of your extra colored squares and cut them like the picture shown below.
Cut a 5″ strip from you white fabric and cut 6, 5″ by 5″ squares. Then cut them like your colored fabric.
You will arrange your squares like below making sure you have 6 different blocks that are well mixed.
Sew you triangles together and then sew two of your squares together like this:
Then sew them together to make your finalized square. Do this 6 times.
Cut your 17 white 5″ x 14″ blocks. You will first need 8- 5″ x 14″ strips.
Sew two of you blocks together with one of your white strips in between.
Do this again until you have a strip with 3 blocks. Do this 4 times.
Now use your last 9 to use making your strips in between. Use your small squares that you made earlier and put a white square on both side of the squares and in between. Do this 3 times.
Now sew your strips together like below.
Sew everything together until it looks like the following:
Cut all of your left over white fabric into 5″ strips to make your sashing to go around the entire quilt. Sew and you are done. It is that simple!
