Kimono Keepsake

Designed and made by Nellie Holmes & Christine Baker www.uppercanadaquiltworks.com Quilted by Grace Whiting-Signature Quilts Finished Size: 52" x 70" 4. From KM/A#1 (kimono panel): Cut four strips of kimonos along the length wise grain of fabric. You will need four rows of nine kimonos. Cut along the printed gold line between the rows and this will give you a ¼" seam allowance. We didn't use the row that had the selvedge. Be sure to have nine complete kimonos in each row. Each of these strips should measure 53½". 5. From the black: Cut twenty strips 1½"x WOF For lengthwise sashing: Cut four of the strips in half on the fold line. Using a mitered join sew one short strip to one long strip to make a total of 8 strips. Trim to 53½" or the length of your actual kimono strips. For top and bottom sashing: Use two of the 1½"x WOF strips For black border: Cut two of the 1½"x WOF strips in half on the fold line. Using a mitered join sew one short strip to one long strip to make a total of four strips. Set aside the remaining strips for the rest of the black borders on your quilt. 6. From KM/J#1 (striped): Cut eight strips 2" x WOF. Sew two strips together end to end using a straight (not mitered join). Repeat for the remaining strips to form four strips total. Set aside for inside border.

Sewing:

Use an accurate ¼" seam allowance. 1. Choose five different 1½" strips of fabric cut in steps 1, 2 and 3. Sew together as shown in Diagram A. Repeat to make a total of four strip sets, alternating the colours you put together to give the most variety. Press all seams in one direction. Diagram A

4. Sew the triangle units into rows of 17 triangles as shown in Diagram D. Sew a total of three rows. Trim these strips the same length as your kimono strips.

2. Cut each strip set into 5½" squares as shown in Diagram B. You should get at least seven 5½" squares from each strip set. Diagram B

3. Cut each of the 5½" squares once diagonally. Alternate the direction you cut as shown in Diagram C. You need a total of 51 triangle units.
