Mom and I are so excited to be bringing you our fourth recipe. This one uses the lovely Cattails & Clover by Kansas Troubles which is absolutely gorgeous and a Bella Solid layer cake. This quilt finishes around 80 x 80 inches.
Mickey & April
1 Bella Solid Layer Cake Natural
1 yard brown for setting triangles
1 1/2 yards gold for outer border
5/8 yard woven for binding
5 yards backing
90 x 90 inches batting
From 41 of the prints in the layer cake cut the following (do NOT cut into strips cut each separately):
5 ⅞ inch square
3—3 ⅜ inch squares
Cut 5 ⅞ inch square in half diagonally once.
From 41 of the squares in the natural layer cake cut the following (do NOT cut into strips cut each separately):
3—3 ⅜ inch squares
4—3 inch squares
2—3 ¼ inch squares
Cut 2—3 ¼ inch squares in half diagonally once.
Piece together half square triangles using the 3 ⅜ inch squares. For a total of 6.
(place squares face to face…draw a line diagonally and stitch a ¼ inch seam allowance and cut along the drawn line)
….these pictures would NOT load…
Piece together blocks as follows for a total of 41 blocks.
From the setting triangle fabric cut 2—15 ½ x 44 inch strips cut into 4—15 ½ inch squares cut in half diagonally twice (setting triangles) and 2—8 inch squares cut in half diagonally once (corners).
Layout quilt as in picture 5 x 5.
Cut 8—6 x 44 inch strips for wide border. Piece together 4—6 x 88 inch strips then piece to sides first then top and bottom.
Cut backing in half and piece together to measure 86 x 90 inches.
Layer quilt with backing and batting and quilt as desired. I machine quilted Clover Cake with a variagated thread in an over-lapping free-style meander.
***I machine quilt on a Juki, so i do not have a stitch regulator which makes some stitches longer.***
From the binding print cut 8—2 ¼ inch strips.
Piece strips end to end.
Stitch strips down.
Roll strip around edge and stitch binding down–or hand stitch down on back.
