Recently, I stumbled on a quilt by Missouri Star Quilt Company that almost reminds me of a stained glass window. It’s called “Dakota Sunrise” and you’ve got to give it a try!
Jenny Doan decided to give this quilt a try in one of her video tutorials. It’s a breeze to stitch together, and it takes a lot less time than you would think.
So by now, I’m guessing you want to give stitching this up a try. Let’s get started by gathering the following materials.
Stitching It Up
First, gather your squares and contrasting fabric. Then, you’ll cut them up into strips and varying sizes of squares. Each block is made with two squares, one large and one small, and a strip.
In between these pieces of fabric go your contrasting fabric, acting as sashing. There are also tiny cornerstones of your block fabric along the sashing, which really ties this thing together.
Technically, one block isn’t even a full square. It’s more of an “L” shape, which allows for an interlocking of the blocks that creates the full quilt top design.
Watch Jenny stitch up this quilt in her video below, then get started on your own. You’ll love how yours turns out!
