fter a wonderful weekend visiting home (Columbus, Ohio) I’m ready, and motivated to start on my latest project! A quilt for my oldest nephew!
This weekend I actually gave the first two quilts I made out as gifts, one to my middle nephew, and one expecting friend Hilary, she’s due to have a little angel, Stella Rose, any day now. (I took pictures of the first one for my nephew, but completely forgot to get pictures of the second one!!)
I tend to get attached to things, and these quilts were no different, but I figured I might as well make them for others or all I’ll have in the end is a pile of blankets in my closet!
Anywho, I want to share my newest quilts progress with you. Soon, id love to write up some tutorial-ish posts about quilting for you all to see how easy it is (and fun)!
I picked out one patterned fabric and two solids for the quilt top. In the end the quilt will measure 40″x60″.
I imagined a asymmetrical checkered pattern.
Each of the blocks to be sewn will end up making a 10×10 square. The blocks will be put together in six rows of four blocks each.
Each 10 inch square consists of 4 pieces of cut fabric, two larger pieces of the patterned fabric measuring 5×7 inches, the are two solid pieces of fabric, one of each color measuring 5×3 inches.
To make this quilt, I need 48 squares of each cut, the smaller cut will be divided by two colors.
So far, I’ve cut all the fabric, and I’ll give you a look at what one block will look like.
The blocks will be alternated like so…
Let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions.
