Oh, Good Night

Hello....I'm Jo from from Jo's Country Junction. I'm here to share my first Moda Bake Shop project,"Oh, Good Night" with you. This quilt is simple to make as it is made with only two shapes, squares and triangles. The challenge to this quilt is organizing the layout...but don't worry, it's very do-able.

If you look carefully, you will see that you need to make 42 blocks. The remaining blocks are created with sashing.

Judi and Clint at Green Fairy Quilts have put together a quilt kit if you'd like to make your own quilt.

1 Fat Quarter Pack, Origins by Basic Grey
1.75 yards of background fabric
5 yards backing fabric

Full size quilt batting
No binding fabric is needed as the binding is cut from your fat quarter pack

Easy Angle Ruler

From your background fabric, cut:

17 - 3.5 inch strips.
Sub cut into: 165 - 3.5" squares and 48-easy angle triangles.

I am a HUGE fan of my easy angle ruler. It saves fabric and it just makes sewing triangles together easier. If you haven't used this ruler before, don't panic....

For easy instructions to use your easy angle ruler, follow this link to my blog, Jo's Country Junction.

From your fat quarter pack you will need to cut 72 sets of 4 - 3.5" x 3.5" squares and one 3.5" strip. Sub cut the strip into 4 easy angle triangles. Being my background was the solid brown, I chose not to use a few of the prints.

This quilt has a scrappy binding. To achieve this you will need to cut a 2.5" strip from 16 of your fat quarters.

Start sewing:

Make 42 "blocks" as shown. Yes my instructions are correct. We will add the corners later. The remaining pieces will be sashing.

Pick four of the blocks to be your corner blocks. Add background triangles to three of the corners.

Pick 18 blocks to be along the edge. Add two background corners to those blocks.
Now lay the blocks out as shown, putting the edge blocks along the edge and corner blocks at the corners. You should have a 6 x 7 design layout.

Take the remaining cut pieces and start filling in the spaces as shown. You really need a design wall or floor space for this. Take your time doing this. It's not hard at all...it's just easy to get the pieces in the wrong spot.

Turn the triangles on each corner over, pinning the triangle in place. Sew. Then iron the block.

Now go back and pin the three sashing squares that are between the blocks together and sew.

Then sew the row of blocks to the sashing pieces creating a row.

Pin together and sew the squares that create the sashing between the rows.

Sew the sashing rows and the rows of blocks together to create the quilt top.

Seam the backing together. Quilt as desired.

Your finished quilt should be 69" x 81".

I love quilts that look so much more difficult to put together than they really are... and this one is great! I LOVE it! I especially love that it is basically squares and triangles, easy shapes for beginners to create a masterpiece like this!

I am confused by the instructions. I wanted to use jelly rolls and a coodinating solid...but altho your instructions don't say so, am I right that you have to use a bigger strip for the half square triangles?

How many FQ were in the FQ pack you used? Thanks.

There are 40 fat quarters in the bundle.
