To make the lozenges Valerie cut 5" squares and then for the contrast corners squares of 2 ½” were used.

You will need two contast squares for each large square

Valerie's quilt was made 10 across x 10 down - you can see why she likes to multi-layer cut!!!!

For Stitch n Flip you need to draw across the diagonal of the contrast square (or fold) and then sew along this line;  you can chain piece these;  sew the other square on the opposite corner (not the one next to it!)

Press and when happy you can cut the excess fabric off.

Lay out in a pleasing manner;  sew together into rows (or maybe units of 4 if you want to do Valerie's scrap quilt);  sew rows, or units, together to form the quilt top.

Add borders - suggest 3" upwards  and Valerie used corner stones of the scrap batiks.

Please click here for the pdf instructions.

of the Rainbow quilt, which is built in the same way but uses specific placement of colours and the colours are placed onto the background fabric.

Use Pre-cuts or scrap from your Stash

You could use your pre-cut bundle of 5" squares,or a layer cake cut into quarters,  or do what Valerie does, and cut from her stash.   Valerie reminds you how easy it is to cut through multiple layers of fabric accurately - which is what the rotary cutter was designed to do.

This easy lozenge shape lends itself to a wide variety of designs, using the Stitch 'n Flip method of sewing.

If you used different fabrics in sets of 4 then you could create a completely different look with perhaps X's and O's.

Easy sewing across the corners of your squares mean that this can be accomplished by complete beginners.

If you are a subscribed member then instructions for the Rainbow quilt are available as a bonus.
