Essentials
  1. Fabric: assorted fat quarters; white cotton; plain coloured cotton
  2. Lightweight wadding

    1 Download and print the layout grid. From each of the four darker shades, cut rectangles, 9cm x 17cm. From the lightest print and plain white cotton, cut several 9cm squares. Ensure the fabric designs are the correct portrait orientation when cutting the material.

    2 Arrange the rectangles in the form of our layout grid or create your own design, then add the lighter squares above and below each one so that they alternate. Sew each square to the top or bottom of each rectangle with a 5mm seam allowance.

    3 Pair up the adjacent strips and sew into blocks. Assemble the quilt, matching up the seams where necessary. Press all of the seams to one side before layering the completed quilt top onto wadding and plain white cotton backing fabric.

    4 Topstitch the layers along the vertical seam lines only. Trim the wadding and backing to the edges of the quilt top and zig zag stitch to temporarily bind. Cut several 4cm wide strips of plain coordinating cotton and sew along the edges of the quilt back, matching the raw edges and mitring the corners.

    5 Turn the binding to the front of the quilt and fold under 5mm along the raw edge. Pin and topstitch the folded edge of the bind to the front of the quilt, 2mm from the fold.
