        Diagram E
        Diagram F
        Diagram GDiagram H
        1. To make Side A of the Half-Square Triangle unit, use a pencil to draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of each of the 18 print squares (7-7/8"x7-7/8"). Cut along drawn line to have a total of 36 triangles (four from each print) (Dia. A).

        2. To make Side B of the Half-Square Triangle unit, sew two White strips (2-1/2" x WOF) on each long edge of 1 Black strip (1-7/8" x WOF) (Dia. B); press as shown. Make six strip sets.

        3. Use Template to cut out Side B triangles from strip sets. Align the dotted Template lines with the black strip according to Diagram C. Use a pencil to trace around template, alternating the direction to make six triangles from each strip set for a total of 36 Side B (White and Black) triangles (Dia. C). Cut out the triangles on the drawn lines.

        4. Layer a Side A triangle on top of a Side B triangle RST with edges even; pin. Sew with a scant ¼" seam and press the seam open. If needed, square up blocks to measure 7-1/2"x7-1/2", trimming off points (Dia. D). Repeat with remaining Side A and Side B triangles to make a total of 36 Half-Square Triangle Units.

        5. Lay out the Half-Square Triangle Units (7-1/2"x7-1/2") in six rows of six as shown. Beginning with Row 1, place first two squares RST, pin well and sew. Tip: Match angles by pinning the intersection at the 1/4" seam allowance. Add remaining squares and press seams according to the arrows (Dia. E). The row should measure 7-1/2"x42-1/2". Repeat for the remaining five rows.

        6. Pin and sew Rows 1 & 2 RST; press. Repeat to sew remaining rows together (Dia. F). Completed quilt top should measure 42-1/2"x42-1/2".

        7. To make the backing, sew two Black (6-1/2"x18") and one Black (6-1/2"x13") strips RST on the short side; press seams open. Sew the two 48" sides RST to make one backing 48"x48"; press seam open (Dia. G). Place backing fabric wrong side up on a flat surface and secure with masking tape. Layer the batting and quilt top with right side up. Starting at the center, baste the layers together with thread, pins or basting spray.

        8. Refer to quilting Diagram H for a simple yet creative quilting design. Tip: Sewing with an even-feed foot is helpful when quilting through layers to feed fabric more evenly and prevent wrinkles on the back of the quilt. Quilt “in the ditch” or seam in a diamond shape along the black and white seam lines. Use masking tape to mark a matching double diamond in the middle of the colored triangles. Once quilting is complete, square up corners and edges, trimming excess backing and batting even with the quilt top.

        9. Sew Black binding strips (2-1/2"x42") end to end to make one long strip; press seams open. Press one short end 1/4" to the wrong side. Fold in half lengthwise with wrong sides together; press. Leaving a 2" tail on the folded end, place cut edges of folded binding even with the edge of the quilt top and sew mitering the corners (Dia. I). Overlap ends, trim any excess and finish sewing the binding. Fold binding over to the back and hand stitch.

      • Finished Care Instructions: Machine wash in cold water, gentle cycle. Lay flat to dry or tumble dry low.
