Bright Sun

Choose a cheerful variety of prints from your scrap basket or from a Layer Cake to make a sweet and simple mini-quilt that will add some sunshine to any room, no matter the season.

Designed by Sherri McConnell; machine quilted by

Abby Latimer

Finished size: 15 x 19

Finished block: 4 x 4

Materials

Yardage is based on 42"-wide fabric, unless otherwise noted.

10 x 10 square each of assorted prints for blocks: at least 6 blue, 3 pink, 2 yellow, and 2 gray*

⅓ yard of cream solid for block backgrounds

⅛ yard of cream print for border

⅛ yard of blue print for binding

½ yard OR 1 fat quarter of fabric for backing

18 x 22 piece of batting

*Precut Layer Cake squares work perfectly for this project.

Starch for Stability

It really helps to starch and press all of the fabrics before cutting, as the starch provides extra stability when working with small cuts of fabric. When using starch, plan to wash your quilt after it’s finished.

Cutting

All measurements include ¼"-wide seam allowances.

From each of the blue, pink, and yellow 10" squares, cut:

1 square, 2½ x 2½

8 squares, 1½ x 1½

2 squares, 2 x 2

From 1 gray 10" square, cut:

1 square, 2½ x 2½

8 squares, 1½ x 1½

From another gray 10" square, cut:

2 squares, 2 x 2

From the cream solid, cut:

2 strips, 2 x 42; crosscut into 24 squares, 2 x 2

3 strips, 1½ x 42; crosscut into 48 rectangles, 1½ x 2½

From the cream print, cut:

2 strips, 1¾ x 42; crosscut into:

2 strips, 1¾ x 16½

2 strips, 1¾ x 15

From the blue print, cut:

2 strips, 2 x 42

from Sherri McConnell

Assembling the Blocks

Instructions are for piecing one block at a time. For each block, you’ll need pieces cut from two prints. Sherri used two different prints from the same color:

Print A: eight 1½ squares and one 2½ square

Print B: two 2" squares

Cream solid: two 2 squares and four 1½ x 2½" rectangles

1Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of the eight matching print A 1½ squares. Place a marked square right sides together on one end of a cream 1½ x 2½ rectangle, orienting the line as shown. Sew on the line, and then press the square away from the rectangle. Trim the seam allowances to ¼. Repeat to sew a second marked square on the opposite end of the rectangle to complete a flying-geese unit. Repeat to make four matching units that measure 1½ x 2½.

2Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of two cream 2 squares. Place each marked square right sides together with a print B 2 square. Sew ¼ from each side of the marked lines. Cut along the lines to yield two matching half-square-triangle units from each pair of squares for a total of four. Press the seam allowances toward the print. Trim the units to 1½square.

3Lay out the print A 2½ square, the four half-square-triangle units, and the four flying-geese units in three rows as shown. Join the units in each row. Press the seam allowances in opposite directions from row to row. Join the rows; press the seam allowances open. The block should measure 4½ square.

4Repeat steps 1–3 to make six blue blocks, three pink blocks, two yellow blocks, and one gray block (12 total).

Assembling the Quilt Top

1Lay out four rows of three blocks each as shown in the quilt assembly diagram below. Join the blocks in each row; press the seam allowances open.

2Join the rows; press the seam allowances open.

3Sew the white 1¾ x 16½ border strips to the sides of the quilt center; press the seam allowances toward the borders. Sew the remaining border strips to the top and bottom of the quilt; press the seam allowances toward the borders.

Finishing the Quilt

Go to ShopMartingale.com/HowtoQuilt for more details on quilting and finishing.

1Layer the backing, batting, and quilt top; baste the layers together. Hand or machine quilt as desired. The quilt shown was quilted with horizontal cables.

2Use the blue 2"-wide strips to make the binding and attach it to the quilt.

Opposites are fun!
