Kristy’s Dream Quilt

The highlight of this project was working with¬†“A Morris Tapestry”¬†fabric designed by Barbara Brackman. The colors and design of this fabric line is STUNNING! This is my second project for the Moda Bake Shop and I could not have enjoyed it more.

1/2 yard #8172-22 for border #1
2 3/4 yards 8175-11 for border #2
Backing, 5 1/2 yards #8176-11

Sewing Instructions:

Large Flower Wheel – Make 24

  • For each flower wheel, make (4) 5″ rail fence blocks
  • Choose 2 sets of 3 strips (2″ x 10″) from the sliced layer cake.
  • Sew each set of 3 strips together, pressing seams to one side.
  • Slice each set in half, for (4) 5″ square rail fences.
  • Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on each of the 3 1/2″ background squares and another line 1/2″ away.
  • In the upper right hand corner of each 5″ square rail fence block, sew a 3 1/2″ background square diagonally. Then go back and sew a second seam on the other line.
  • Cut away excess between the two seams and press the blocks open. Because you have already sewn a second line, the leftovers can be opened for HST’s for bonus projects later.
  • Assemble the Large Flower Wheel, following the picture layout below.
ASSEMBLY – Small Flower Wheel (Finishes at 9″), Make 15
For each small flower wheel, make 4, 3 1/2″ square rail fence blocks.
  • Choose 2 sets of (2) 2″ x 10″ strips
  • Sew each set of 2 together (for 2 strip sets) pressing seams to one side.
  • Slice each set 3 1/2″ to make (4) 3 1/2″ square rail fences.
  • Draw a diagonal line across each of the 2 1/2″ squares.
  • In the upper right hand corner of each 3 1/2″ square rail fence, sew the 2 1/2″ background square diagonally and cut away the excess.
Assemble the Small Flower Wheel, following the picture layout below.

Frame the Small Flower Wheel with the background strips, 2″ x 6 1/2″, pressing seams to the outside. Then sew the 2″ x 9 1/2″ strips to the top and bottom, press seams to the outside.
