Patchwork Auditions - Layout

Sep 29, 2015
Pin It Earlier this month, I posted the last of the Patchwork Auditions blocks.  Now, I'm so excited to start putting this scrappy quilt top together!  The goal of the series was to look at some classic blocks and think outside the box.  There are many ways to color a quilt block - and I thought I'd start recoloring things by looking at some classics.  

Here's how I plan to piece my quilt top together.
80" x 88"
For this layout, you will need:
 
  • (15) 16" finished blocks
  • (8)   12" finished blocks
  • (2)   8" x 12" rainbow strip blocks
  • (12) Flying Geese rows
For the rainbow strip blocks:
Each color rectangle is 3 1/2" x 8 1/2" unfinished.  (4) different color rectangles are sewn together to make one rainbow strip block (8 1/2" x 12 1/2" unfinished).

For the Flying Geese rows:
Each row is made up of (6) 2" x 4" finished Flying Geese units.
Cut (1) 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangle of a color and (2) 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" squares of background to make (1) Flying Geese unit.
             So.... we need (144) 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" background squares
                      and (72) 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles of color. 

I am making all 6 Flying Geese in each row the same color, but you may make them as you like.

For sashing:
Cut (4) 4 1/2" x 80 1/2" strips of background.

I'm off to work on this quilt top.  It's going to be a big one!
