Beach Balls

Beach Balls will brighten up any nursery with a profusion of cheerful colors. The easy curved-seam piecing makes this colorful quilt a snap to stitch.

By Cleo Nollette; quilted by Shelly Nolte

QUILT SIZE: 45½ x 45½ • BLOCK SIZE: 8½ x 8½

Materials

Yardage is based on 42-wide fabric. Fat quarters are approximately 18 x 21".

11 fat quarters of assorted bright solids and pastel tone-on-tone fabrics for blocks and inner border

1½ yards of blue polka-dot fabric for outer border

1⅓ yards of white polka-dot fabric for background

⅜ yard of blue solid for binding

3 yards of fabric for backing

49 x 49 piece of batting

Batting and thread to finish

Template plastic

Cutting

All measurements include ¼"-wide seam allowances. Cut strips across the fabric width unless otherwise specified. Patterns A and B are on page 9.

From each of the 11 fat quarters, cut:

5 pieces using pattern A

(55 total; you’ll have 3 left over)

1 strip, 1¼ x 16 (11 total)

From the white polka-dot fabric, cut:

4 strips, 7 x 42; crosscut into:

26 rectangles, 5 x 7

2 squares, 7 x 7; cut each square in half diagonally to yield 4 corner setting triangles

2 squares, 13½ x 13½; cut each square into quarters diagonally to yield 8 side setting triangles

From the lengthwise grain of the blue polka-dot fabric, cut:

2 strips, 4¼ x 38

2 strips, 4¼ x 45½

From the blue solid, cut:

5 strips, 2¼ x 42

Making the Blocks

1 Cut two B pieces from each white polka-dot rectangle.

2 Fold the A and B pieces in half along the curved edges to mark the centers; finger-press the fold at the curved edges. Clip into the seam allowance along the curved edge of each B piece.

3 Place a B piece on top of an A piece, matching one outer edge and the centers. Pin in place, and then slowly stitch from the outer edge to the center mark, stopping with the needle down.

4 Move the pin to the opposite outer edge and continue sewing slowly until you reach the end.

5 Repeat steps 3 and 4 to make a total of 52 units. Press the seam allowances from the front of the piece, pressing toward the A pieces.

6 Randomly join four units to make a Beach Ball block. Repeat to make a total of 13 blocks.

Assembling the Quilt Top

1 Arrange the Beach Ball blocks and the polkadot side setting triangles into diagonal rows. Sew the pieces in each row together, and then sew the rows together, matching seams. Add the corner setting triangles last.

2 Stitch the assorted 1¼ x 16 strips together end to end in random order to make one long strip.

3 Measure the width of the quilt top and cut two pieces from the pieced strip to this measurement. Sew them to the top and bottom of the quilt top. Measure the length of the quilt top, cut two pieces to that length, and sew them to the sides of the quilt top. Repeat for the blue polka-dot 4¼"-wide outer borders.

Finishing the Quilt

For more details on quilting and finishing, go to ShopMartingale.com/HowtoQuilt.

1 Piece the backing fabric so it’s approximately 4 to 6 larger than the quilt top.

2 Layer the backing, batting, and quilt top and baste the layers together. Hand or machine quilt as desired.

3 Trim the batting and backing fabric so the edges are even with the quilt-top edges. Attach a hanging sleeve, if desired, and then bind the quilt using the blue 2¼"-wide strips. Add a label.

Making the Blocks

Each block uses the same dark fabric for the nine-patch unit and the flying-geese unit. Each block also uses one light print for the nine-patch unit.

1 Use a pencil to lightly draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of each white square. Place a marked square on one end of a dark rectangle, right sides together. Sew along the marked line and trim away the corner fabric, leaving a ¼" seam allowance. Press the seam allowances toward the resulting white triangle. In the same manner, sew a white square to the other end of the rectangle to complete a flying-geese unit. Make four matching units for each block (36 total).

2 Lay out five matching dark squares and four matching light squares in a nine-patch arrangement as shown. Sew the squares together into rows and press the seam allowances toward the light squares. Sew the rows together to complete the nine-patch unit. Press the seam allowances toward the center. Make nine units.

3 Using four matching medium or dark squares and four matching flying-geese units, sew a square to one end of each unit as shown, being careful to sew the square to the correct side of the flying-geese unit. Make four matching units for each block (36 total).

4 Lay out four matching medium or dark squares, four matching units from step 3, and one matching nine-patch unit from step 2 as shown. Sew the pieces together into rows and press the seam allowances as indicated. Sew the rows together to complete the block; press the seam allowances toward the center. Make nine blocks.

Assembling the Quilt Top

1 Lay out the blocks in three rows of three blocks each. Place white 2½ x 10½ sashing strips between the blocks and medium or dark 2½" sashing squares between the horizontal sashing strips, referring to the quilt layout, opposite. When you’re pleased with the color arrangement, sew the blocks and sashing pieces into rows. Then sew the rows together. Press all seam allowances toward the sashing strips.

2 Measure the length of your quilt top; it should be 34½. If your top measures less than 33½ or more than 35½, you’ll need to adjust the pieced borders in step 3 to fit. Trim two of the yellow strips to this length and sew them to the sides of the quilt top. Press the seam allowances toward the borders. Measure the width of your quilt top; it should be 36½. Trim the remaining two yellow strips to this length and sew them to the top and bottom of the quilt top in the same manner.

3 For the outer border, randomly sew the medium or dark rectangles and light rectangles together in pairs. Make 36 pairs. You’ll have two rectangles left over. Then sew nine pairs together to make a border strip as shown. Press all the seam allowances open to reduce bulk. Make four outer-border strips.

4 Sew two matching light squares and two matching medium or dark squares together to make a Four Patch block as shown. Make four.

5 Sew border strips from step 3 to opposite sides of the quilt top as shown in the quilt layout. Press the seam allowances toward the inner border.

6 Sew Four Patch blocks to both ends of the two remaining border strips and press the seam allowances toward the blocks. Then sew the borders to the top and bottom of the quilt top. Press the seam allowances toward the inner border.

Finishing the Quilt

For more details on quilting and finishing, go to ShopMartingale.com/HowtoQuilt.

1 Piece the backing fabric so it’s approximately 4 to 6 larger than the quilt top.

2 Layer the backing, batting, and quilt top and baste the layers together. Hand or machine quilt as desired.

3 Trim the batting and backing fabric so the edges are even with the quilt-top edges. Attach a hanging sleeve, if desired, and then bind the quilt using the light-green 2¼"-wide diagonally striped strips. Add a label.

Baby Planets

Make Baby his or her first piece of art! Luscious batiks blend in the background to give this simple quilt an artistic flair. Use the same yummy color scheme to inspire a creative selection of paint for the nursery walls too.

By Jean Van Bockel

QUILT SIZE: 30½ x 40½

Materials

Yardage is based on 42"-wide fabric.

⅜ yard each of 9 assorted soft pastel batiks for background and binding

Scraps of aquamarine, lime-green, yellow, teal, orange, hot-pink, light-pink, purple, blue, and violet fabrics for appliqué

1½ yards of fabric for backing

34 x 44 piece of batting

Template plastic

Cutting

All measurements include ¼"-wide seam allowances. Cut strips across the fabric width.

From each of the soft pastel batiks, cut:

2 strips, 3½ x 42 (18 strips total); crosscut into lengths varying from 12 to 24

1 strip, 2 x 18 (9 strips total)

Cutting and Arranging the Strips

1 Each row is made up of either two or three 3½-wide strips that when joined measure at least 42. Cut one vertical row at a time. To cut two adjoining pieces, stack two strips together both with right sides up. Align the 45° line of the ruler along the edge of the strips. Cut a 45° angle on the right end of the strips. Turn one of the strips around so that the angles match up. Place another strip on top of the last strip cut. Vary the direction of the diagonal cuts by placing the 45° line of the ruler on the top or bottom fabric edge.

2 Place the strips on your design wall or floor to check color placement and angles. Arrange 10 rows.

Sewing the Pieces into Rows

1 With right sides together, sew the pieces together in each row, offsetting the ends of each piece to allow for an accurate ¼ seam allowance. Press the seam allowances in one direction. Trim each row to measure 40½.

2 Sew the rows together. Press all the seam allowances in the same direction.

Appliquéing the Circles

The circles for Baby Planets were hand appliquéd. You can use your favorite appliqué method.

1 Trace all the circle shapes, opposite, onto template plastic. Write the size of each circle directly on the template.

2 Cut and prepare the circle appliqués as follows: one 4¼ aquamarine circle; one 3½ yellow circle; one 3¼ circle each of aquamarine and orange; one 3 circle each of hot pink, purple, and light pink; one 2¾ circle each of blue and teal; one 2½ circle each of orange, hot pink, and violet; one 2¼ circle of lime green; one 2 circle each of lime green, yellow, and purple.

3 Refer to the quilt plan for suggested placement of the 16 circles. Baste or pin them in place and appliqué.

Making the Blocks

1 Using a pencil and your rotary-cutting ruler, draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of the blue, aqua, and periwinkle 1½ squares. Lay a marked square on one corner of a light-print 2½ square as shown, right sides together. Sew on the marked line. Repeat to make six blue units, 18 aqua units, and 18 periwinkle units.

2 Align the ¼" line of a rotary-cutting ruler along the seam line of each unit and trim away the excess fabric. Flip open the remaining colored triangles and press the seam allowances toward the darker fabric.

3 Arrange the units from step 2 with the matching 2½" squares to form the blocks as shown. Stitch and press. Make 21 Bow Tie blocks. Press seam allowances toward the darker colors.

Assembling the Quilt Top

1 Stitch the blocks and light-print squares together to form seven rows of six blocks each. Press the seam allowances toward the plain squares.

2 Sew the rows together, pressing all the seam allowances in one direction.

Adding the Border and Prairie Points

Be sure to measure the quilt top through the center and cut the border strips to fit that measurement. Press all seam allowances toward the border strips as you go.

1 Sew the blue print #1 borders to the sides of the quilt. Press. Sew the blue borders to the top and bottom of the quilt. Press.

2 Fold each aqua 2¾" square in half on the diagonal and on the diagonal again as shown to make the prairie points.

3 Overlapping the edges of the points slightly, pin them to the quilt top, raw edges together as shown. (At this point, the prairie points should be pointing in toward the center of the quilt.) Pin 15 prairie points to both the right and left sides and 13 to both the top and bottom of the quilt top.

4 Using a scant ¼" seam allowance, carefully stitch the points to the edges of the quilt top, removing the pins as you reach them.

Finishing the Quilt

For more details on quilting and finishing, go to ShopMartingale.com/HowtoQuilt.

1 Cut the backing fabric so it’s approximately 4 to 6 larger than the quilt top.

2 Layer the backing fabric right sides together with the quilt. Stitch the backing to the quilt top using a ¼ seam and leaving an 8 opening on the bottom edge. Lay the batting over the backing and quilt top, and using the largest stitch length possible, baste the layers together around the outer edges using a scant ¼" seam allowance. Trim the excess backing and batting.

3 Turn the quilt right side out; smooth the edges and corners. Hand stitch the opening closed.

4 Gently press the quilt and baste the three layers together. Hand or machine quilt as desired.

5 Add a hanging sleeve, if desired, and a label.
