I try not blog too much about mag work as I feel I’m not sharing anything new, but I just had to blog about this quilt. 

It’s in the latest Quilt Now (in shops today.) 

Made with lots of lovely Kona solids and measures approx 60″ square.




I loved seeing it come together and can’t wait to get it back! 



  1. I love, love, love the Fraction quilt. So much so that I rushed to order all the material and cut it all up, put the bits in labelled bags and felt very smug. However, as I have now started to sew, I am finding sizing issues because the instructions say cut 41/2 inches square, then cut this four and a half inches square into half and quarter square triangles, then trim to 4″. Am I missing something here? Because the finished squares require a lot of fiddling and jiggling because the maths doesn’t work and it is not finishing with a neat job. What am I doing wrong?


    1. Hi Linda, thanks for getting in touch.

      There’s a slight error in the mag, the blocks need to be trimmed 3.5″ square, not 4″ (there’s room to trim slightly larger but not quite to 4″)

      So, For each block, when you have your correct arrangement of 1 HST and 2 QSTs, sew them together to create a square, press and then trim to 3.5″ square, do this for all the blocks and see together as per the diagram, this will create a finished quilt of 59″ square.

      I hope this helps and makes things a little easier for you, if not please let me know and I’m more than happy to walk you through things. I’m also really happy that you are making this quilt, and hope you love your finished quilt!


  2. Love, love, love this. The WOW factor definitely. Saw it in the magazine and had to tell you how much I love it. In fact, can’t write more now. Off to order up some Kona solid fat quarters…….
