Indian Summer Wall Hanging


Hi! This is Kim and I’m back with a quick and easy tutorial to share with you. This wall hanging comes together quickly using triangles and there is no marking needed. All fabrics used are from Kansas Troubles Perennials collection.

6 fat quarters – 3 light, 1 medium, 2 dark coordinating prints
1st Border – 1/3 yard
2nd Border – 5/8 yard
Binding – 1/4 yard
Backing – 1 yard

The fat quarters are labeled as follows: light 1, light 2, light 3, med, dark 1, dark 2.

Determine your color order and cut as follows:

Light 1: 4 – 3 7/8″ squares
Light 2: 8 – 3 7/8″ squares
Light 3: 8 – 3 7/8″ squares
Medium: 4 – 3 7/8″ squares
Dark 1: 8 – 3/ 7/8″ squares
Dark 2: 4 – 3 7/8″ squares
1st Border: 4 – 2 1/2″ strips
2nd Border: 4 – 4 1/2″ strips
Binding: 3 – 2 1/4″ strips

Stack the squares into their own piles according to the fabric prints.

Cut all 3 7/8″ squares once on the diagonal.

Here I’ve separated them by print.

Sew all the half square triangles following photos below.
Sew 16 Unit A half square triangles.

Sew 4 Unit B half square triangles.

Sew 8 Unit C half square triangles.

Sew 4 Unit D half square triangles.

Sew 4 Unit E half square triangles.
Unit E
Take the Unit A half square triangles and place them as follows to create a pinwheel block.

Sew the half square triangles together to complete the pinwheel block. These will be the corner pinwheels for your quilt top. Sew a total of 4 blocks.

Repeat the steps above with the Unit B half square triangles to form the pinwheel block for the center of the quilt top.

Take the remaining Unit C, D and E half square triangles and place them according to the image below.

Sew the half square triangles together. These blocks will be for the outside center of the quilt top.

Sew a total of 4 blocks.

It’s time to assemble the quilt top. Place all your blocks as follows.
Sew the rows together.
Take the 1st border strips and sew them to the sides, trim excess.  Sew the remaining strips to the top and bottom of the quilt top, trim excess. Press seams towards the border.
Repeat the same steps above for the 2nd border.
Layer the quilt top, batting and backing together. Quilt as desired. Sew the binding strips together and bind using your preferred binding method.

This will make one 30″ square wall hanging or table topper. Come visit me over at my blog for more fun ideas using your leftover fabrics.
