Mirage Quilt

Mirage Quilt Pattern Written by Donna Jordan for Jordan Fabrics

Finished Size: 61 x 61”

Fabric Requirements:
20 – 2 ½” WOF in a variety of colors
1 ¼ yards solid or almost solid background
Binding: 5/8 yard
1st Border : 3/8 yard
2nd Border : 1 yard
Backing: 3 ¾ yards

Cutting instructions:
Cut your background into 4 @ 10” WOF(width of fabric). Sub-cut into 16 – 10” squares.
1st Border: Cut 6 of 1 ¾” WOF (width of fabric)
2nd Border: Cut 6 of 5” WOF(width of fabric)

Sewing Instructions:
Take 5 of the 2 ½” strips and stitch them together along their long sides into a strip
unit, using a ¼” seam allowance. Press all seams to one side.

Repeat to make a total of 4 strip units. Cut each strip unit into 4 of 10”.
You will now have a total of 16 units that measure 10” x 10 ½”.

Center a 10” background square on top of a strip unit with right sides together. Stitch a
¼” in from the raw edge of the background square on all 4 sides.

Using a rotary cutter and ruler, cut along both diagonals.
Trim off any excess fabric from your strip unit down to ¼” seam allowance.
Open each of the 4 resulting squares and iron the seam allowance toward the background, being careful not to stretch the squares out of shape because all the edges are bias.

Repeat with all strip units and backgrounds to get a total of 64 blocks.
Trim off dog ears in desired.

Layout the squares as shown above and stitch into rows. Stitch your rows together,
making sure to match intersections. Carefully iron the patchwork top flat by moving the
iron along the grain of the fabrics (diagonal to the edges of the quilt).

Border 1: Stitch all border pieces into one long piece. Measure your patchwork top,
being careful not to stretch it, and cut 2 borders to that exact length. This will ensure
that the bias edges of the quilt will not stretch as you sew the borders on. Stitch onto
the top and bottom of the quilt. Measure again and cut your side borders to the exact
length need and stitch on.

Border 2: Sew onto all 4 sides of your quilt.

Fabric requirements:

magic boxes
Magic Boxes
Designed by Donna Jordan for Jordan Fabrics

Finished Size 68 x 88”


Cutting Instructions:
If you are using quarter yards, cut each one into 3 of 2 ½” WOF (width of fabric). You need 64 strips.

Accent fabric:
Cut 40 of 2” WOF (width of fabric). Set 8 aside for inner border.

Make a strip unit using 2 of the 2 ½” jelly roll strips and one 2” accent strip as shown below. Press all seam allowances to the left side.

Repeat to make a total of 32 strip units.

Take 2 of the strip units and place them right sides together so that the seam allowances are facing in
opposite directions. Stitch the units together along each long edge. You now have a strip tube. Repeat to
make 16 strip tubes.
Steam press each tube nice and flat.

Place the strip tube on your cutting board and place the 7” line of your Strip Tube Ruler on the bottom
stitching line (NOT the cut edge) and cut a triangle. Flip the ruler around so that the 7” line is on the top stitching line and cut a triangle. Continue this process to get 7 triangles from each strip unit for a total of 112 triangles (you only need 108 for the quilt, 6 will be extras).

Open each triangle and press seam allowance to one side being careful to iron along the grain of the fabric
which is diagonal so the squares do not distort.

Lay out the squares as shown above in 12 rows with 9 blocks in each row. Stitch into rows, and stitch rows
together – alternate the direction of the seam allowances so the block intersections will nest. Be careful
again when ironing – press along the grain of the fabrics.

Borders:
Stitch the reserved 8 of 2” inner border strips into one long piece. Measure the width of your quilt top and
cut 2 borders that measurement and stitch onto the top and bottom of the quilt. Measure the length of your
quilt and cut 2 borders that measurement and stitch onto each side of the quilt.

Outer border – cut 9 of 4” WOF. Stitch into one long piece and stitch onto all 4 sides of the quilt.

To make this quilt, you’ll be using primarily 2.5″ strips. This will help create the blossom pattern, and you can even buy a jelly roll to make it easier for you!

You’ll also need an accent fabric, like the purple Donna uses in her tutorial. Then, you’ll need a background fabric. Depending on how bright your other fabrics are, you may want to go with a neutral.

Donna uses a white fabric for her neutral, but a black or gray will work just as well if you decide you want a super bright lotus. Adjust the amount of fabric for the size quilt you’d like, as Donna shows.

For your background and accent fabric, Donna suggests pressing your fabrics so your your cuts are as accurate as possible. For the sizes you’ll need, you can get the written pattern by clicking here!

A lot of what you’re stitching up is going to be made from half square triangles, making this a super easy quilt to make. That, and the colorful finished product is something you’ll definitely want to show off.

Finished block size: 15" x 15"

Finished quilt size: 60" x 75" (without borders)

The quilt blocks are strip pieced.

Fabrics for the Nine Patch Bento Box Quilt
The quilt can be scrappy but do try to choose fabrics of similar color value (contrast) within each fabric designation. Label your fabrics.

Photos of the block begin on page 2 and you can see the entire block on the last page of the pattern. Fabric descriptions match the block, not the quilt pictured above.

Fabric 1
A dark fabric—pictured is a black print
1-3/4 yards

Fabric 2
A fabric that's lighter than Fabric 1—pictured is a yellowish paisley (or a warm fabric, as long as there's good contrast between it and Fabric 1)
1 yard

Fabric 3
A fabric that's darker than Fabric 2, but lighter than Fabric 1—pictured is a grayish print
1-1/8 yard

Fabric 4
A warm color (such as magenta, red, orange, yellow, gold) that 'pops' a bit, but contrasts with Fabric 1—pictured is a reddish batik
1-1/4 yard

Fabric 5
A light neutral that contrasts with all other fabrics—pictured is an ivory paisley print
2-1/4 yards
