Bloomin' Peaks Quilt




Hi, this is Emily. I design under the name Aunt Em and my blog is Em's Scrapbag.  This is my first time getting to post on Moda Bake Shop and I must say I'm tickled pink to be here.  When I first saw the line Cuzco, I thought of my daughter.  Her favorite colors are orange, purple and green.  A perfect fit, don't you think?  She always wants to eat outside so a picnic quilt is perfect for her.  I hope that you will enjoy it also.


2- jelly rolls Cuzco
3 yards Bella Solid platinum background and binding
4 yards Bella Solid platinum backing



First open those yummy jelly rolls and mix and match the strips into 18 sets of 3.  Sew these together.


Take each of your strip sets and cut them into 2 1/2" lengths.


Mix and match these to create 85 nine patches.


Take 10 of these nine patches and line up your ruler so that the 1/4" line runs through your center points.


Stay stitch a scant 1/4 inch along cut edge to keep from stretching.


From your background fabric cut
 68- 6 1/2" squares
5- 9 3/4" squares cut on diagonal twice
2- 5 1/4" squares cut on diagonal once

Using  the 5 1/4" squares cut on diagonal once for your corners and the 9 3/4" squares cut on diagonal twice as setting triangles along edge follow the diagram below to lay out your quilt.


Sandwich your quilt and quilt as desired.  I did organic zig zag lines.  If I had more time I would have loved to do some big stitch quilting in the quilting in the colors of the prints in the quilt.  Bind with remaining platinum.



 One 70" x 87" quilt perfect for a picnic in a mountain meadow, or for cuddling under with cocoa after a day on the slopes.

Stop by and visit me for what to do with the the other half of your setting nine patches or just to say 'hi'.
