I have tried everything to do an applique block in EQ7 and get the templates to transfer in "real" size, so if you want to do the applique block and have EQ, it is in the applique blocks, under eight elements, on the last page, bottom right, and called "acorn and oak leaf". If you do not have EQ, you can send me your snail mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will mail you the pattern. The pieced blocks probably will not be those shown below but will all have a star feeling to them.
Dark Fabric: 3-1/2 yards (dark red)
Light Fabric: 2-1/2 yards (pink fabric)
Fat Quarters: 6-8 different fabrics
Background for pieced blocks and applique block: 1/2 yard
Cutting instructions for pieced blocks (not the BOM pieced blocks) for the background:
Cut 3 strips 13" wide by wof. Subcut into eight 13" squares. Cut these squares once diagonally.
Cut 4 strips 13-1/4" wide by wof. Subcut into eleven 13-1/4" squares. Cut these squares twice diagonally (both directions)
Cut 11 strips 2-1/5" wide for first border
Remainder can be used in the pieced BOM patterns.
I am not giving the amount of fabric for the final border but will figure that out when we are almost through. If you find what you want before then - my usual rule of thumb is 3 yards so I can cut it on the length of fabric instead of cross grain.
Cut 2 strips 13" wide. Subcut into six 13" squares. Cut these squares once diagonally.
Cut 4 strips 13-1/4" wide. Subcut into eleven 13-1/4" squares. Cut these squares twice diagonally.
Use remainder in the pieced blocks.
You will need to make 12 blocks using the large triangles from the dark and light fabrics to make this block
(unfinished block should measure 12-1/2"):
The quilt with a final border of 6" finished will be 100 x 100. If you don't want the last border, it will finish at 88 x 88.
