Just a Small Slice, Please Quilt

moda

Hello!  I am Denniele Bohannon of Louanna Mary Quilt Design.  As a first time chef, I am very excited to be bringing you Just a Small Slice, Please made from Barbara Brackman’s latest William Morris line, The Morris Jewels.  The rich and vibrant prints just begged for clean lines and large pieces to let them sparkle.

This quilt finishes at 48″ x 60″.

You can select 27 fat 8ths or cut wedges from each fat 8th in the bundle.

Cut an 8″ strip from each fat 8th.  Using the ruler, cut 8 wedges from each strip.  You can flip the ruler to make the cutting go faster.  Cut 216 wedges.

Each row has 27 wedges.  The first row starts and ends with the widest end of the wedge at the top.  Alternate the wide end from top to bottom to create a row.

Single row

Stitch the first two wedges together.

Lay out the second row matching the wide end of the wedges to the first row.  Stitch as before only press the seams to the left.

Continue adding 6 more rows in the same manner.  Pressing seams in each row the opposite direction from the previous row.  Stitch the 8 rows together butting the seams up to each other.  Press these seams open.

Quilt, bind and enjoy!
