Paper Lanterns Sew Along Week Twenty

We’re already at week 20 with 5 weeks to go, I honestly feel like this sew-along has flown by. Watching all the quilts come together has been so much fun and even though I know what mine will look like its been great to lay it out each week with the new block attached, I almost expect it to be a surprise lol. There is a lot of work in this quilt and you should all be very proud. I have to say these large shapes have never been my go to but changing things up and making a quilt using such large shapes has been fun and it seems to come together just a little bit quicker. I’m not sure I’m converted to big shapes but it sure has been a lot of fun and you may just find me introducing some of these larger shapes into my future projects.


  • 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.
