    Ok, I think I have it figured out. My quilt will have four blocks across and four blocks down. First row, Make the the complete blocks but leave the right petal off. When you join the blocks, the left side petal with fit into the right space.

    Second row, make the middle of the block and two bottom petals, the two side and two top pieces will be left blank as they will fit to the top row and side blocks.

    you can do this either way. Work each row and add the petals as needed. I will do the side next.

    It seems that every Joseph's Coat that I have researched on the web, is hand pieced lol and they are all beautiful. I can't imagine how long it took to make one.

    Personally I don't hand piece anything lol. I have several machines and I make good use of them as I want my quilts in at least two weeks or shorter lol.

    The only handwork I do is, silk ribbon and crewel and beading and I totally love that part of hand work, so I can understand someone doing a quilt that way.

    Joseph's Coat of many Colors

    I cut petals for hours last night and backgrounds this morning. I think I cut 150 petals. It seems that you sew this quilt as you go lol.

    I made four block across. Now the second row, as you can see is totally different. You have to keep the circles going so half blocks are used also.

    I make a center block only, put it on the board and then I can see what has to be added. I up loaded two blocks where you can see both ways you can do them. For instance, you can add the petals outside in the second block or add them in the third row. Here in the second row, the row begins with a half block, and three whole blocks, so far two are up .

    I am going to finish all the blocks (16), put them on the board and then I will sew them together.

    Geri, copy and paste the instruction into a word program, right click on the images and copy those separately and paste them into the work program.

    Barb, click on the pdf, it will come up in your adobe reader. Click on file and then print. On that print page are little boxes with different things listed and one of them will say, custom scale or page scaling...uncheck that box if it is checked. There are only two pages in the file.

    I have finished four blocks across and four down. I have left the separation between the blocks and the rows so you can see the parts.

    I sewed three petals and three backgrounds for 1/2 of the block and then the other, then I sewed these two halves together. First I pinned the center and long stitched it and if it matched, then I would sew the entire seam with the usual stitch length.

    First I made four complete bocks, row 1. Then I made only the center blocks for row two, except one block, where I forgot and put the bottom petals one but that works out for the third row, where I will omit the petals for that join.

    The sides are half blocks. Since I was feeling my way with this quilt my pieces parts are all different lol. So if I were to make this quilt again. I would do the four complete block for row one. The center blocks for row 2 and the complete blocks for row 3 and again the center blocks for row 4. Then all you need are the half blocks for the sides.

    I will now join the block and then the rows. I hope this helps anyone who wants to do this quilt. I wasn't going to spend much time on it but then I decided to work overtime (without pay lol) and finish it as I really love it. I might add more blocks as I see I still have some petal left, don't know yet.

    Geri,
    I could not find a link to the templates either. And I believe SABLE is something like Stash accumulated beyond life expextancy

    Rosy,I can't get the template printed large enough for the 18 inch block. Do I have to go to kinkos and use a larger printer or am I doing something wrong? Your quilt is BEAUTIFUL ,love it

    Thanks for the tutorial! My friend I saw last week has a vintage Joseph's Coat quilt on one of her beds...I loved the quilt...will try a few "blocks" and see how it goes to decide if I want to make one or not.

    Oh my gosh I need to make this!! Thank you so much for sharing the tutorial on how to make this. I love sewing curves and this will be a fun one for our guild to maybe do as a group. I can see them sharing fabrics for variety... or bringing all their scrap boxes in and using them up. That would be really fun.
