Paper Lanterns Sew Along Week Seventeen

A new week brings a new block combination, woohoo!!! I love change especially when I’m sewing, if things stay the same I tend to lose interest quickly so I like to mix things up a bit. We’re closing in on the end of the sew along and I cannot wait to see all the different version finished.

We’re planning to do a virtual hanging of the quilts when we’re all done. I plan to walk you through our gardens with my quilts hanging and hope that everyone who has finished their quilt tops will join in and share.


  • Yellow  Floral Lantern Jewels (6)
  • Lemon Floral Lantern Jewels (6)
  • Coral Floral Lantern Jewels (3)
  • Pink Floral Lantern Jewels (3)
  • Grey 2″ Half Hexagons (7)
  • White Floral 2″ Half Hexagons (7)

18 – Floral Lantern Jewels

14 – 2″ Half Hexagons

Follow the EPP instructions and make the following.


Make 2


Make 1


Make 7

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 pieces together as shown in the diagram.


Until next time
