Piecing the Quilt:

  1. For row 1, arrange the ivory and green print Isosceles Triangles into one row of 27 Triangles, alternating fabric patterns between the ivory and green prints. Sew an ivory Right Triangle at each end of the row.
  2. For row 3, sew a blue flower 2" H x 3 5/8" W Triangle to a tan print 2" H x 3 5/8" W Triangle. Make 28 sets. Sew the two sets together to make 14 complete quarter squares.
  3. For row 5, sew a pair of orange dot and orange plaid Half-Square Triangles together along the diagonal seam to form a square. Make 40 squares.
  4. Repeat step 3 to make 40 squares of orange dot and brown Half-Square Triangles sewn together.
  5. Arrange the squares to make a pinwheel design. Sew across to make a row. Then sew the two rows together to complete row 5.
  6. For row 7, sew a pair of green flower print and gray dot Squares together. Make 14 sets. Sew sets together to make seven four-patch squares.
  7. Repeat step 6 to make six-and-a-half four-patch squares of dark green and green flower prints.
  8. Arrange the four-patch squares into a row. Sew the blocks together to complete row 7.
  9. For row 9, sew a pair of tan flower print Half-Square Triangles to both sides of a blue print 1 1/2" H x 2 1/2" W Triangle to make a flying geese unit. Make 40 flying geese units. Sew two sets together to make one square unit. You should have 20 squares.
  10. Alternate the directions of flying geese units, between pointing up and pointing right. Sew the squares together to form row 9.
  11. For row 11, sew the Rectangles together along their long sides, alternating colors.
  12. For row 13, arrange the ivory and blue plaid Isosceles Triangles into one row of 27 Triangles, alternating fabric patterns between the ivory and blue plaid. Sew an ivory Right Triangle at each end of the row.
  13. For rows 4, 6, 8 and 10, heat fuse the Cars, Trucks and Camper in place on the ivory 6 1/2" wide strips x 42 1/2" with an iron. Stitch around each shape.
  14. Arrange the rows as shown in the photo.
  15. Sew the rows together to form the quilt top.

Finishing:

  1. Layer the backing, batting and quilt top. Quilt by hand or machine as desired.
  2. Trim the sides of the quilt.
  3. Sew the binding Strips together to form one long Strip. Fold wrong sides together lengthwise, and press.
  4. 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.
