Good Day (Repeat)

Good Day (Repeat)

67" x 75"
A Yoko Saito Design

The timeless charm of this traditional quilt will become a family treasure. Use the muted colors in the pictured quilt or brighten up the world if you like. This can also be a great stash buster! A perfect project for beginning paper piecing and unlike a lot of paper pieced quilts we won't be wasting a lot of fabric! Paper piecing makes each block perfect so they fit together perfect too. The circular design adds to the intrigue of the quilt. Paper piecing at Winter Quiltfest is the best because a maid is coming in to clean up the mess!

Supply List

Fabric Requirements:

Assortment of light fabrics, (8 3/4 yard total) I used stash fabrics. About 42 fat quarters.

The background for each single block needs to be cut from the same fabric. (Beige, taupe, grey, etc.) At least 5 1/2" x 44" is needed for one block. Fat Quarters work here to get 3 backgrounds out of each.

Assortment color fabrics (yellow, red, pink, chestnut brown, grey, blue, etc.) About 42 fat quarters.

Each block is made using one color. Colors may be repeated in more than one block as with the backgrounds.  5 1/2" x 44" or 1 fat quarter per color used. I made 3 blocks per fat quarter. I picked 42 Fat Quarters of colors that I liked together.

126 blocks (don't let that scare you!)
