    Joseph's Coat

    I was reading this thread and went and did a research for Georgia. I will do a small tut here to help her out.

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...ml#post6207660

    If you would like to try this quilt, go to the thread above and download the pdf that I uploaded.

    Now here is the beginning of the block. I have never done this one before so I will post as I go along.

    First, gather up all different fabrics or go to the link posted in the thread above to look at her quilt. Cut six wedges and six background.

    I mark the centers of each one by just folding over and pressing a crease. There are three creases in the background and one crease for the middle of the wedges.

    Pin the middle of one wedge to the middle of one background and pin through the 1/4 inch seam allowance at both ends.

    Sew three wedge to one background, two wedges to 4 backgrounds and one wedge to one background (pics below).

    I just set them together to see if they are ok. I will have to make at least three more blocks before deciding on the sewing together.

    I will not square them off as I will leave them rounded at the edge.

    Sew with the concave on top. Since this is a bias, it should go together well. I used my purple Thang to pull the fabric over the convex. My background is a very lite tone with roses. I will use many colors as this Joseph's coat.

    Wow, that is amazing. You have made it very clear and I do believe it will be something for the future. As a SABLE quilter I need every idea I can find.

    First what is a SABLE quilter? Second: this Joseph coat is fascinating me....went to a local quilt show recently and sat in on a presentation on something very similar to this but her pattern is based on a circle that is segmented with four melon shapes and she hand pieced the melons to the center in a row doing two on each center, joining, and going on.......anyway end result seems to be the same as this.....my question after this long statement is: where is your pattern for your tutorial, I could not find it in the reference sites offered?

    thanks - found the pattern and have printed it out....
    Now my question to Rosyhf........the template pattern shows this block is then squared off with the corner curves..is that correct and then the now square blocks are joined together....whereas the hand quilted site--forgot the name just shows adding peels and centers along the way????? I see the templates are from EQ5-is that correct...I have that version..never thought to look there.......thanks all........love that this can be machine pieced.......hand piecing is not my fav thing to do, actually avoid it like the plague!!!!!

    Yes Geri, it is an EQ block. You can square the blocks but I prefer to just leave the edges round. I have another way of putting these together in my head. I will see if it's going to work.

    I wasn’t going to work on this quilt too long as I had some other stuff planned. I figured if I made the block larger, I could just do enough blocks to show the process of putting the quilt together. I have a fair idea but won’t know until I try it lol.

    So far I have enlarged the block to 18 inches and I love it!! In EQ, it gives you about 14 pieces that you don’t need. So I clicked on the delete button and then clicked on the patches and clicked delete on the keyboard and you can get rid of all the extra patches and just print the two that you need.
    The first block came out ok. I say ok because I am not pleased with the way the points came out, but I will rip those a bit and fix later. In the meantime, I did another block and just did the middle petals, as I didn’t know yet how the set up will go.
    I joined that block to the outside petal of the first block and then I could see that I could sew five petal on and just leave the one joining without. I will continue with two more blocks in a row, the same way.
    Then on the second row, I will work that out when I come to it.
    Here is a pic of the first large block, then with the second block and then the second block joined to the first and the extra petals added. I just layed them up there.

    Rosy-

    I love the look of this block and can't wait to try it! Sewing curves is something that I'm not very experienced at, so I'm thinking that the 18" version would be better for me to start with. May I ask how you enlarged it to that size?

    Thanks for taking the time to post this tutorial for us.

    I am happy to help. Here is the template for the 18 inch block.

    make sure to put the "page scalling" to none.

    I hope Karen doesn't mind but you might want to see a hand pieced and hand quilted version of Joseph's Coat. Yes, that's what I said ..... hand pieced and hand quilted!!! It's a real beauty!!! I think she is still a member of this board but am not sure. Go check out the photos.
