From your white tone-on-tone, cut 18-7.5" squares.
Trace 18 dresses using the template onto the paper side of your Visoflex or Heat n Bond fusible web.
Fuse them to the chosen dress fabrics on to the wrong side. Next, fuse each dress to one of the 7.5" white tone-on-tone squares.
Using your machine, blanket stitch around each shape.
From your 4 triangle block fabrics, cut 9-8" squares.
Choose 2 squares. Lay them right sides together and draw a diagonal line from one side to the other on the top fabric.
Stitch 1/4" on either side of the drawn line.
Now cut along the drawn line and press your block. Repeat with remaining squares.
Now cut your blocks along the diagonal so you have 4 small triangles.
Mix up your blocks, then pin and stitch them together so you have 4 triangles in each block.
Stitch your blocks together in rows of 5. There will be seven total.
Stitch your rows together.
Pin baste your quilt using straight lines. Quilt & bind.
