Rising Sun Quilt Pattern

Use a deep orange for the main rays, lighter orange and yellow for the others. Starting with the center octagon and center rays, and working outward, appliqué these pieces onto the 18-inch white background squares (cut squares 18-1/2 inches to allow for seams).

The sun motif measures 16-3/4 inches in diameter, from point of ray to point of opposite ray. The Repeat shows entire quilt, 90 inches square without a border. The background squares may be cut larger if a larger quilt is desired.

When cutting fabric, allow for seams.
