Making the Blocks

1. Separate the 5” charm squares by color. There will be 12 color groups.

2. Place the 12 different 5” charm color groups with a coordinating Bella Solid fabric. There will now be 12 charm/solid fabric groups.

3. Take one group and cut the 5” charm squares in half yielding 2 – 2 ½” x 5” rectangles. Cut the coordinating Bella Solid fabric into 1 – 4” x WOF (width of fabric) strip. From the strip cut into 4 – 1” x WOF strips; then from the 1” x WOF strips cut into 16 – 1” x 5” rectangles and 16 – 1”x 3 ½” rectangles. Repeat for remaining 11 charm/solid fabric groups. (Note: Be sure to keep the 12 coordinated groups separate from one another.)




Sewing the Blocks

1. Take 1 charm/ solid fabric group and sew a 1” x 5” coordinated Bella Solid rectangle to each side of the 2 ½” x 5” charm rectangle. Press to solid fabric.

2. Sew a 1” x 3 ½” coordinated Bella Solid rectangle to the top and bottom of the block. Press to solid fabric. Square to 3 ½” x 6”. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 for all 80 blocks.

(Note: Depending on the charm square color groups, you will have 6 or 8 blocks)

Cutting the Sashing

From the Bella solid white sashing fabric cut:

22 – 1” x WOF strips. Set aside 16 of the strips for the inner border and sashing strips. From the remaining 6 strips subcut into 72 – 1” x 3 ½” rectangles.

Cut 1 – 3 ½” x WOF strip. From the strip subcut 10 – 3 ½” squares units.

Sew a 1” white sashing strip to each side of rows 1 and 11. Sew a 1” white sashing strip to the right side only of rows 2-9. Press to sashing strip.

Outer Border

2. Measure center length of quilt top and cut 2 strips to that measurement. Sew to each side of quilt. Press to border.

3. Measure center width of quilt top and cut 2 strips to that measurement. Sew top and bottom strips on. Press to border.

Quilt as desired.

Binding

From the Bella solid red binding fabric on the lengthwise grain cut 4 – 2 ½” x LOF (length of fabric) strips.

1. Sew all the strips together (short ends) to make 1 continuous strip. Fold binding in half wrong sides together and press. Attach binding to right side of quilt (raw edges even) and machine stitch all the way around. Turn binding to back and hand stitch down.
