I have had quite a few requests through e-mail that I share a little bit more about the "Toile A Good Night" quilt that I showed on a post a few days ago.
The pattern was designed by Dana Brooks of Lazy Daisy Cottage. The original size was a throw (42X50). I made mine larger. I will share with you the fabric requirements for the original. If you want to enlarge, you can do your own math.
There are only 2 relatively easy blocks to make for this quilt. One is a 9-patch, using 5 pinwheels and 4 toile blocks. The adjoining blocks are a simple 9 1/2 inch piece of Toile.
The original quilt had 3 rows across and 4 rows down.
Fabric Requirements: 1 1/2 yds Toile, 1 yd dark fabric, 1/3 yd light fabric.
I made mine with 6 rows across and 7 rows down. * Make sure to allow for extra yardage.
To make the pinwheels, cut 2 3/8th inch squares of both the light and dark fabric. Cut in half diagonally. Piece together to make a 2 1/2 inch half square triangles. Place 4 of these together to make the pinwheel block. The joining toile pieces are cut 4 1/2 inches square. The final block should measure 12 1/2 inches unfinished, or 12 inch finished.
Cut the connecting Toile pieces 12 1/2 inches.
