Piecing Instructions:

  1. Arrange pieces as desired, using the photo as a guide.
  2. Sew Darts together in pairs. Dart pieces are all the same, but are sewn in columns of either left-leaning blocks or right-leaning blocks (see Diagram A). Place darts right sides together and sew from point to point.
  3. Sew left-leaning columns and right-leaning columns (see Diagram B).
  4. Sew columns together, pinning at each intersection to match points. Press seams open to reduce bulk.


  1. Layer the backing, batting and quilt top. Quilt by hand or machine, as desired.
  2. Sew binding strips together to form one long strip. Fold wrong sides together lengthwise and press.
  3. With a 1/4" seam, sew the raw edges of the binding to the edges of the right side of the quilt. Turn the folded edge of the binding to the back side of the quilt and stitch in place by hand, mitering the corners.
