Fabric B-  cut  3  @ 7 1/4 inches across the full width of the fabric. Cut these strips into 14 7 1/4 inch        
                squares. Cut these squares across each diagonal, giving 4 triangles out of each square.

Fabric C-  cut 10  @  3 1/2 inches across the full width of the fabric.
               - cut 3   @  7 1/4 inches across the full width of the fabric. Cut these strips into 13 7 1/4 inch squares. Cut these squares across each diagonal, giving 4 triangles from each square.
               - cut 2 squares  @  6 7/8 x 6 7/8 inches.

Binding- cut 10  @  2 1/2 inches across the full width of the fabric.

Sew the Fabric A 3 1/2 inch strips end to end. From these long lengths, cut 2  @  66 1/2 inches and
2  @  84 1/2 inches.  Sew the 84 1/2 inch borders to the sides of the quilt. Press to the border fabric. Sew the 66 1/2 inch borders to the top and bottom of the quilt. Press to the borders.

Corner Border Squares, using triangles already cut, make four.
Fabric B  -  4 triangles
Fabric D  -  4 triangles
Fabric C  -  2  6 7/8 inch squares, cut once on the diagonal to yield 4 triangles.

Lay the triangles out as shown in the photo below. Sew the Fabric D triangle to the Fabric B triangle, keeping the fabric orientation as shown in the picture below. Sew the Fabric C triangle to the the long edge. Press towards Fabric C.
Quarter Square Triangles, make 52

Lay out your fabrics as shown in the diagram below. It is important that all the colours are in the same place in each finished unit.


Take a B triangle and place it, right sides together, with the A triangle. Feed it through the sewing machine with the fabrics orientated as shown in the photo below. The A fabric will be on the bottom, and the B fabric on the top, as shown. The long angles of the fabrics will be off to the left of your sewing line, facing  towards the back of your sewing machine. Sew down the short side, as shown in the photo below. Make all 52 in this exact same way. Press towards Fabric A.

Place a fabric C triangle right sides together with a Fabric D triangle, as shown in the photo below. Fabric D will be on the bottom, with fabric C on top.
The long angles of the fabric will again be off to the left of the sewing line, but will this time be facing the front of your sewing machine.
For all of the colours of the triangles to be in the same spot in the finished blocks, it is important that they be sewn in the same way. Make 52 of these. Press towards Fabric C.




Sew these two triangle units together as show. Make 52.

Lay out the side borders as shown, using 15 quarter square triangles per side. Make 2 as shown.
