The Sunrise Quilt with Albion by Amy Smart

Hi friends! I’m Melanie Call from A Bit of Scrap Stuff Blog and Instagram. I loved sewing with the new Albion Fabric Collection designed by Amy Smart. The floral prints and colors are fabulous! I knew this collection would need a quilt pattern with large blocks so the fabric would shine. My Sunrise Quilt Pattern is the perfect match!

The Sunrise Quilt is a block based quilt so it’s easy to make the quilt larger or smaller by making more or less blocks. I chose to enlarge the quilt by adding a border as I love the Albion Blue Flowers print.

Sunrise Quilt  77″ x 77″


  • Sunrise Quilt Pattern available in Pattern Shop or Etsy
  • 18 Fat Quarters: Albion by Amy Smart
  • 2 yards Background: Albion Ash Dots
  • 2.5 yards Sashing and Blocks: Albion Cream Flowers 
  • 0.75 yards Binding: Albion Blue Stripes  
  • 1.5 yards Border: Albion Blue Flowers 
  • 5 yards Backing:

Half-Square Triangle Tip: For perfectly sized half-square triangles – I recommend trimming your blocks with a Bloc-loc half-square triangle ruler  OR using the appropriately sized AccuQuilt Die. Having perfectly sized blocks makes piecing your quilt so much easier!

OPTIONAL Outer Border Instructions:

The original Sunrise Quilt doesn’t have a border, but adding an outer border is super easy! 

  • Choose 1.5 yards of your favorite print – mine is: Albion Blue Flowers
  • Cut (8) 5.5″ x WOF strips
  • Sew strips together to form one very long narrow strip
  • Measure quilt length. Example Quilt Length of 66.5″*. Cut (2) outer border strips 5.5″ x 66.5″*. Sew (1) outer border strip to right side of quilt and (1) outer border strip to left side of quilt.
  • Measure quilt width. Example Quilt Width of 77″*. Cut (2) outer border strips 5.5″ x 77″*. Sew (1) outer border stripe to top of quilt and (1) outer border strip to bottom of quilt. * Cut your border strips to the measured length and width of your quilt.

Binding Cutting Instructions if adding Border:

  • Cut (8) 2.5″ x WOF of binding fabric.

Sunrise Quilt Pattern is available in my  Pattern Shop or Etsy

I can’t wait to see your quilt!
