Size: 50” x 60”
Designed by Sarah Ruiz for the Modern Quilt Guild

For questions & to sign-up please find the info in our PHXMQG newsletter



Inspiration & Details

  • Sara Ruiz is a NASA engineer by day and a quilter by night. She has designed a quilt based on a single rectangular block. Six sections comprising fifteen blocks complete a 50” x 60” quilt.

  • There are a lot of design possibilities with block placement and fabric choices. Ombre? Prints? Solids? As Sarah states, put your own spin on it!

  • A pattern for beginner & seasoned quilters, the ¼” seam allowances, nesting seams, pressing, and partial seams (only 1!) will result in skills built and honed with a dramatic result!

  • The pattern is found on the Modern Quilt Guild website and is free with your membership.

  • The quilt is sewn together in sections and we will be sewing blocks according to sections. Note – there are 7 A blocks and 8 B (mirror image) blocks making it easy to sew ahead 🙂
