This is a downloadable PDF pattern with all instructions for making your own quilt.

This is a fun quilt that you can piece in a day. Each block is made from 10” squares so it is precut friendly!

It’s a great quilt for a coordinated precut packet or you can use leftover precuts from one designer’s line. You can also use large print scraps to make a scrappy version but I suggest limiting the number of colors in the solids to give your quilt top a cohesive look.
This pattern includes two versions of this quilt. One is the Turning Corners Diamond Version, using a variety of prints and solids for a scrappy look. The Diamond block units when pieced look like this—a wonky diamond shape appears in the center of each set of four pieced blocks.

BONUS PATTERN! I had so much fun making variations on this quilt that I decided to make another version. I call this the ‘Lost Corners’ pattern. The corners in some blocks are ‘lost’ because I used the fabric from the borders in several of the blocks as corners and large patches.

Pattern includes alternate colorways to spark your creativity.

Quilt Sizes: 44” X 48”; 60” X 60”; 60” X 76” (Quilt size is easily customizable to make it larger or smaller.)

You will use these modern quilting design elements in this project:

• Modern color palettes and bold, graphic prints
• Use of negative space: incorporating a background fabric that covers a noticeable percentage of the quilt top
• Improvisation: experimenting with block design, quilt layout, fabric choices, and all other aspects of quilt design. Improvisation means seeing what emerges when you let go of pre-planning and measuring!
• Maximalism: an emerging trend in modern quilting characterized by use of saturated colors in all areas of the quilt, including negative space

This piece is so beautiful and the directions are very clear! I jumped right into it. By rating the level of difficulty of each block in the directions, that helped me to know the challenge level of each block before I started. That was like a little voice telling me to just take it slow and "you can do this!" I wish this designer would make more paper piece designs!
