Orbit QAL :: Printable Mockup Sheet

I apologize for being a day late!


Here are the links to the printable PDFs:

Quilt By Number | Orbit Mockup Sheet

Plain Jane | Orbit Mockup Sheet


With two kiddos, my sewing time needs to be pretty focused if I’m going to accomplish anything.

The Quilt by Number sheet has a number for the placement of the fabrics so that you can number your fabrics and know exactly where to place them.

This helps me be productive and makes my sewing pretty mindless.

Mindless = relaxing for me!


The Plain Jane version is blank so that you can color it in however you’d like.


For this quilt, I took the blank sheet and added my fabrics for the big orbits.  I wanted to get a feel for how they would play next to each other.

Once I found the best spot, I glued them down.

OCD, yes?  haha…

Hopefully this will help you in planning your quilt and making the most of the time you have!

xo, Lindsey

    I’m wondering about the full 60 x 60 size of the pattern. How many of the large orbits across will that be? So, then this mockup sheet represents what percent of the whole quilt? Am I jumping the gun? Sorry 🙂

  4. It looks brilliant, thank you x
