Press after each seam.) hoffmanfabrics.com colorgirlquilts.com Make the A Blocks 1. Place a gray 5” square face up on design surface. Position a chartreuse 2” square, right sides facing, so it covers the upper left corner of the gray square. Mark the diagonal of the chartreuse square, from upper right to lower left. Sew on marked line as shown below. 2. Trim the chartreuse corner 1/4” outside the seam line, open and press. 3. Repeat the steps above to add a dusty blue triangle to the upper right corner of the gray square and a spearmint triangle to the lower left as shown below. Press. This is one fourth of the A block. 4. Make three more units in the same manner, following the color placement in the figure below. Use chartreuse, spearmint, dusty blue, aubergine and terra cotta solids in positions as shown. hoffmanfabrics.com colorgirlquilts.com 5. Arrange the units as shown above, with the colored triangles oriented to the outer edges of the block. Orient the units so that the solid color triangles finish next to the same color in the adjacent units. Sew them together first in pairs. Press seams open. 6. Sew the two halves together to complete the A block. Make 12 A blocks. Press. Make the B blocks 7. Repeat the steps for making the A blocks, but with the chartreuse, dusty blue, spearmint, aubergine, and terra cotta triangles in positions as shown below: 8. Sew the four units together to complete the B block. Press. Each indigo block requires four indigo print 5” squares, plus 12 of the same solid color 2” squares. The instructions below are for making the quilt as shown on pattern. You may choose to use a different combination or the same indigo print for all the blocks. 9. Place an indigo print 5” square face up on the design surface. Using the same technique described in steps 1-2, add terra cotta triangles to three corners of the indigo 5” square. Press. 10. Make four of these units, and arrange them as a four patch. Orient the units so that four terra cotta triangles meet in the center, forming a square. Two triangles should also meet on each of the four edges, forming larger triangles. (illustration on next page) hoffmanfabrics.com colorgirlquilts.com 11. Sew the four units together to make the terra cotta/indigo block. Make four terra cotta/indigo blocks. 12. Repeat steps 9-11 to make four blocks each with indigo/spearmint and indigo/dusty blue.
