Joannes Designs Week51 'In The Row Quilt' a quilt designed in strips and incorporating the very versatile nine patch block using half square triangles. With the layout of this quilt it will be very easy for you to use a different block than the one in this pattern.
This quilt is made using a range of blue fabrics in the blocks and a tone on tone fabric in the alternate rows and border.
Below is a fabric guide you will need to make this quilt.
30 Nine patch blocks:
1/2 yard of 5 different blues
1 3/4 yards light blue
4 Alternate rows and border: 2 3/4 yards
Binding: 3/4 yard Backing: 5 1/4 yards

Below I have shown an alternate color way using blacks and greys. While trialling different colors for this quilt I couldn't decide between the two so I have added both.
My advice when making this quilt:
1. Have fun making this simple quilt!
2. This quilt is very versatile in its use. It lends itself to be used with orphan blocks of a similar size. This makes it great to be used in quilting group situations where its ultimate destination is a donation quilt.
3. When constructing your blocks you need to first layout all your cut pieces on a flat surface. Sew the triangles together to form squares. Now you have a simple 9 patch to sew together.
4. Remember to sew all your blocks together first creating 5 strips. Measure the length of each strip and take the average measurement to determine the length to cut the plain strips/sashing between. Doing this will keep your quilt square.
I hope you enjoyed Joannes Designs Week51. Just 1 pattern to go!
