Materials

Quilt designer: Linda Lum DeBono
From Quilting Ideas, Fall 2003
2-1/2 yards total of assorted bright prints for blocks and appliqués
1-1/3 yards of pink plaid for border
1/2 yard of purple print for binding
2-7/8 yards of backing fabric
51x54" of quilt batting

Finished quilt: 45x48-1/4"
Quantities specified for 44/45"-wide, 100% cotton fabrics. All measurements include a 1/4" seam allowance. Sew with right sides together unless otherwise stated.

Cut Fabrics

To make the best use of your fabrics, cut the pieces in the order that follows. Cut the border strips the length of the fabric (parallel to the selvage).
Click on "Download This Project" to download the full-size patterns. To use fusible web for appliquéing, complete the following steps.
1. Lay the fusible web, paper side up, over the patterns. Use a pencil to trace the patterns the number of times indicated in cutting instructions, leaving 1/2" between tracings. Cut out each piece roughly 1/4" outside the traced lines.
2. Following the manufacturer's instructions, press the fusible web shapes onto the backs of the designated fabrics; let cool. Cut out the shapes on the drawn lines. Peel off the paper backings.

Applique Foundations and Assemble Quilt Center

Appliqué the Foundations
1. Referring to the Quilt Assembly Diagram, arrange the appliqué shapes on the designated bright print foundations. Fuse in place. Using color-coordinating thread, machine-stitch around the appliqué shapes with a short, narrow zigzag stitch.
Assemble Quilt Center
1. Referring to the Quilt Assembly Diagram, lay out the appliquéd foundations and the filler blocks in horizontal rows.
2. Sew together the pieces in each row. Press the seam allowances in each row in one direction, alternating the direction with each row.
3. Join the rows to make the quilt center. Press the seam allowances in one direction. The pieced quilt center should measure 37-1/2x40-3/4", including the seam allowances.

Add Border and Complete Quilt

Add the Border
Sew a pink plaid 4-1/2x40-3/4" border strip to each side edge of the pieced quilt center. Press the seam allowances toward the border. Then add a pink plaid 4-1/2x45-1/2" border strip to the top and bottom edges of the pieced quilt center to complete the quilt top. Press the seam allowances toward the border.
Complete the Quilt
1. Layer the quilt top, batting, and backing.
2. Quilt as desired. Linda Lum DeBono machine-stitched the quilt in a free-motion design.
3. Use the purple print 2-1/2x42" strips to bind the quilt.
