Hey there! I’m Amanda Morrison, co-owner and designer for Honey, Bunny, and Doll. This is my first quilt for Moda Bake Shop and I am excited to share my Pixie Sticks quilt with you!
2 True Luck Charm Packs 1 Bella Solids Charm Pack in white 3 yards Bella Solid in white 5 yards for backing 1 yard for binding
Start by cutting 160 white 2 1/2″ squares and 160 white 4 1/2″ squares from your Bella Solid yardage and set aside.
Use your first True Luck Charm Pack to cut 40 charm squares into 160 2 1/2″ squares.
Use 2 of the True Luck 2 1/2″ squares and 2 white 2 1/2″ squares to create four patches as pictured below. Make 80 four patches and set aside until you are ready to assemble the blocks.
Next, use a ruler and pen to draw diagonal lines on 40 of the white Bella Solids charm squares.
Pair a white charm square with a square from your second True Luck Charm Pack and stack right sides together. Sew 1/4″ to either side of the drawn line.
Now cut along the drawn line to create 80 half square triangles.
Press open and trim each to 4 1/2″ square.
Use 1 half square triangle, 1 four patch, and 2 4 1/2″ white squares to make each individual block. Lay out as pictured below and sew the pieces together as you would a four patch. Make 80 blocks.
Lay out and sew your blocks into 10 rows of 8 blocks. This block is simple but so versatile! I tried out a number of layouts before I settled on the one that made me want to call this quilt Pixie Sticks.
A 64″ x 80″ Pixie Sticks quilt!
I am so happy with how mine turned out, and I hope you love yours, too!
