Paper Lanterns Sew Along Week Fourteen

Week 14 and we’re well over the half way mark! I am continuously blown away by the progress many of you are making with your Paper Lanterns Sew-along, I’ve even seen a few finished quilt tops this past week! I’m still sewing along with you all and loving watching this quilt come together.

I’m heading off for a few days away and looking forward to catching up on my crochet and also working on a few blocks for my new This Goes with That BOM which starts early August. We have less then 10 spots left. I’ll share a little of what I’m up to over on my Instagram for those who follow me over there.


  • Coral Jewels (3)
  • Pink Jewels (3)
  • Raspberry Jewels (6)
  • Navy Hexagons (2)
  • Grey Half Hexagons (5)
  • White Flower Half Hexagons (5) – Fussy-cut

12 – Floral Lantern Jewels

2 – 2″ Hexagons

10 – 2″ Half Hexagons

Follow the EPP instructions and diagrams to make the following.


Make 1


Make 2

Hint: To maximise my fabric, I have cut the fabric I will use for the jewels into 3 1/8″ strips and then laid the floral lantern jewel templates along the strips and cut like the image below.



Make 5

Hint: To cut the basket bases I cut strips the width of the 2″ half hexagons ensuring the template is facing the correct direction evert time so the scallop design in the fabric are over-arches.


Hint: When fussy-cutting the white floral fabric for the 2″ half hexagons I have laid out the templates like the image below to get the most repeats. You could, however, need to cut strips between the 2 templates and then cut your half hexagons out.


Join the navy and raspberry pieces togehter.


Join the floral/grey hexagons to the outside of the coral flower.


Join the two sections together.


Until next week!
