Simple Stained Glass Tutorial


I recently ordered a 4" design roll of Tula Pink's latest line, Elizabeth, from Hawthorne Threads.  I ordered yardage too, but I knew I would want to make something right away so I splurged and got the roll.  I made this super quick and easy pattern I thought I'd share!

Fabric Requirements:

(25) 4"xWOF strips of prints
2 yards background fabric
3.75 yards for backing
1/2 yard for binding


Cutting instructions:

From each print
(3) 4" squares
(2) 4"x11" rectangles

From the background fabric:
10.5"xWOF strip then sub cut into (20) 2"x10.5" rectangles for inner sashing
(8) 2"xWOF strips for inner sashing
(8) 4" xWOF strips for outside border



Mix and match your prints to create these square-in-square blocks.  Each block requires (1) 4" square of print A for the center and (2) 4" squares and (2) 4"x11" rectangles of print B for the outside square.  Once these are assembled, cut each 11" square-in-square block into 4 new squares.  


Mix and match again to create all new 10.5" blocks


It helps to lay it all our to make sure you don't have too many of the same print clustered together.  


Add your sashing strips and voila!  Quilt finished at about 63" square.
