You may want to add an extra 1 ⁄2˝–1˝ to each strip length for minor cutting adjustments.

Cut a strip 11⁄8˝ × 101⁄8˝. Crosscut into 9 squares 11⁄8˝ × 11⁄8˝.

Corner and center blocks

Materials

25⁄8 yards total of each of 3 different colorways for the

Nine-Patch blocks and squares (use assorted fabrics; minimum 1⁄4-yard cuts)

Making the Strip Sets

1

⁄2 yard for first border

single fabric. In order for the quilt to be truly scrappy, you will be making more strip sets than usual and will have leftover portions. Don’t try to plan it too much— just let it be very scrappy.

3 yards for outer border

2. For each fabric combination, arrange and sew the

8 yards for backing (pieced widthwise)

11⁄2˝ strips into the following side sets and middle sets.

3

⁄4 yard for binding

Batting: 94˝ × 106˝

Cutting

Refer to Measure Twice, Cut Once, pages 9–10.

From each of the 3 colorways:

Cut 36 assorted strips 11⁄2˝ × width of fabric, for

Nine-Patch blocks.

(Note: Make the Nine-Patch blocks first and measure the blocks before cutting the squares; see Measuring the

Squares, page 13.)

Cut 9 assorted strips 31⁄2˝ × width of fabric. Cut into 31⁄2˝ × 31⁄2˝ squares as follows:
