Step 2

A. Starting with your 5" strips of darks and lights.  You will cut pieces using the Creative Grid Ruler CGRKA6 (Spider Web) You will line up the 5" mark and rotate your ruler. A template is available to print out if you would like to go that route.  If you don't have the ruler and would like to purchase it, you can find it on our online shop.  Click here to shop for this ruler.

More detailed instructions on the pdf below or you can watch the video.

B. From your dark/medium 4 1/4" or 4 1/2" strips you will cut them in to squares.  Your squares will be determined by the size of strip you cut. After you have the squares ready you will cut on the diagonal from corner to corner, making half square triangles. Note: either size works for this project.  Trust me, it will come together.

Step 3

From part 2 you should now have several lights and darks cut into triangles using the Spider Web Ruler or the template.  You should also have half square triangles.

Note: You may want to cut up more from your stash to make a larger size quilt.  Let's use up that stash! Enjoy the process and have fun!

A. Start assembling pairs of lights and darks from your triangles you cut from the Spider Web Ruler or template. You will place the light triangle on top and stitch on the right side of the triangle.  Press seams to the dark.
Lap size make 116 light/dark sets
Larger size make 220 light/dark sets
For a quilt closer to a queen size make 285 light/dark sets

B. Next assemble pairs of dark/dark, be sure to mix up your print colors for these pairs.
Lap size make 24 dark/dark sets
Larger size make 32 dark/dark sets
For closer to queen size make 39 dark/dark sets

C. Your half square triangles should total 140 for the lap size, 252 for the larger size and 316 for the quilt close to queen size.  (note: half square triangles not squares)
