Dandyridge follows modern quilt principles using simple Half Square Triangles for major impact.


Finished quilt: 60” x 72”

Finished block: 12” x 12”

Number of blocks total: 30 (Eliminate Row A for a 60” square quilt)

Number of pieced blocks: 16


- Dandyridge Quilt pattern uses all Half Square Triangles and some smaller background squares to construct the three basic block types.

- There are no patterns to the color combinations of the blocks, however, I did a ROY G BIV pattern for the sample on the cover.

- The pattern is written to minimize piecing time by utilizing a practice called “chain stitching.” Chain stitching involves having pieces cut and ready to sew together. After sewing the first piece, instead of cutting the tails and starting a new piece, you simply feed the next piece through the machine making a chain of pieces. For more information check Youtube for chain piecing videos. It is simple.

- All seams are 1/4”.

- Directions are written for pressing seams open. Pressing to the “dark side” is also appropriate.


- Background Fabric: 4 yards

- Scraps or Fat Quarters of 10-20 different corresponding fabrics (Scraps 5” or larger)

- Three-quarters yard for binding

- 65” by 77” of backing and batting

- Basic sewing and quilting notions

- Long straight pins for matching seams throughout the assembly process

- Pencil or fabric marker

- Ruler with a 45 degree line for cutting squares

- New blade and rotary cutter

Fabric Notes:

- For the sample on the cover, I used a layer cake of Garden Delights II and Kona Solid in White for the background.
