Finished quilt: 57"x66-1/2"
Use the chart to determine yardage and cut pieces for a throw-size quilt.
To cut width-of-fabric strips, fold yardage wrong sides together, with selvages matching, and use a rotary cutter and ruler to cut the indicated number and width of strips from each fabric. Trim the selvages from each end of the cut strips.
• Prewash and press all fabrics.

Quilt Top Construction
1. Arrange one A, B, C, D, and E strip, plus four G strips, as shown at right. Join the strips along adjacent long edges to form a strip set. Press the seams open. Repeat with remaining cut strips to make 14 identical strip sets.
Tip: Place painterʼs tape on the underside of a large square rotary ruler, 1" from each side of the diagonal center line, to temporarily mark guidelines before cutting the blocks. The inner edges of the tape should align with the outer edges of the center strip E.
2. Place one strip set on a cutting surface. Align the diagonal center of a large square rotary ruler with the center of strip E. Cut two edges of a 9-1/2" block, then rotate the ruler 180 degrees, align the 9-1/2" ruler guidelines with the cut edges, and cut the remaining two block edges.
Cut a total of forty-two 9-1/2" blocks.
3. Arrange the cut blocks and 1"x9-1/2" sashing strips into seven rows of six blocks and five sashing strips each, rotating the blocks as shown in the photo.
4. Join the blocks and sashing strips in each row together along adjacent edges. Press the seams toward the sashing strips.
5. Join the remaining sashing strips together along the short edges, then cut six 57" strips from the long strip. Insert one strip between each row of joined blocks, sewing along adjacent edges and pressing the seams toward the sashing.
6. Remove the selvages from each edge of the backing fabric. Cut the yardage into two equal lengths. With right sides together, join the two pieces together along one long edge and press the seam open.
7. Layer the quilt top, batting and backing. Quilt as desired.
8. Trim the excess batting and backing even with the quilt top.
9. Stitch the binding strips together along the short edges, using diagonal seams to make one long strip. Fold the strip lengthwise, with wrong sides together. Press. Stitch to the quilt front, matching raw edges and mitering the corners.
10. Fold the binding to the quilt back and hand-stitch the folded edge to secure.
This construction method creates a number of sizeable triangular scraps that are perfect for use in a secondary project, such as a table runner or small baby quilt.
Matching seamlines, join four of the larger triangles together to make one 12-1/2" (finished size) block. Two smaller triangles make one 5-1/2" block when seams are matched along the diagonal.
