This quilt has 4 basic colors with a background light neutral color. We are showing a more traditional color pallet however, would be beautiful in brights, or even a nice scrappy look within colorways (ex. several light neutrals for background, several pinks, several purples... etc.  The quilt is a nice size of 99" x 99".  You can make it smaller be eliminating the border or larger with a little larger border.  You may also join our FACEBOOK Group for added fun. See what others are doing and provide us your show and tell as you build out your quilt for a chance to win a monthly drawing.  Come Play with us by joining the BCE Sew Along Group BCE Sew Along 2020.  Ask to join today.

Quilt Along Instruction:    

 This is for assembly only - pattern with fabric requirements and cutting instruction is provided by the Benton County Enterprise.



Block 1:  February 20, 2020 


My actual fabrics used were different than pictured in the pattern. This is where a Fabric Key is essential to ensure that fabrics #1 - #4 maintain the overall quilt pattern layout. 
Tip:  Create a Color Key to ensure placements of your fabrics #1 - #4. 
Tip:  Pattern is written for Block Construction 1 at a time, however fabric requirements are for the entire quilt. When Cutting WOF - you may not use the whole piece in the block construction. Hold all extra fabric pieces until entire project is complete.

Cut out pieces as indicated in the Benton County Enterprise Paper.


HST Unit:  Draw a line diagonally on each Background Fabric Square. Place (1) Background

Fabric square and (1) #2 Fabric  square right sides together (RST).  Sew 1/4” on each side of drawn line. Cut on drawn line and press to the #2
Fabric triangle to make HST Unit.

Make 4 HST Units per block.            Note:  Trim dog-ears. This will make it easier to piece when using a 1/4" sewing foot with guide.
