I am starting the easiest ever twin quilt and block! Quilting 101. I kind of feel like I'm cheating somehow. But first let me give you some back story!
My daughter Britt connected to a lady who is a quilt maniac. Actually, a feed sack maniac! I think I have made 4 quilts for her and perhaps as many as 6-7-8 pillows. She is a lady who knows what she wants! I've been working with her for maybe 3 years now. Sweet lady, 3 children. She even entrusted me to make her a quilt using blocks that friends and family adorned when she was married! She trusted me with the task...I was sweating bullets! In the end, she loved it.
About 2 years ago, she wanted me to make a twin quilt for her first son. Teri knows what she wants! She wanted this fabric. A vintage, almost a home dec weight. She found it on Etsy in a shop called: Two Sparrow Studio. You can see the fold line...very vintage!
I purchased the material and proceeded to make this quilt with a matching pillow cover (smaller blocks).
|70" x 90"|
Per request, this is the design. Your basic 4-patch. Her son loved it, Teri loved it...win, win!
A month of so ago, Teri contacted me again and wondered if I could do it all over again! The had another son about 2 years ago!
Sure I can! Oops! I don't have any fabric! Two Sparrows Studio only had a couple pieces listed...what!!! Did I mention that Teri knows what she wants?! She ended up contacting the shop and low and behold...she still had plenty! Go Teri!
I didn't exactly keep a record of how I put this together. Size wise. Luckily Teri came though and measured for me!
10 1/2" x 10 1/2" Cowboy Squares
The four-patch squares are 5 1/2". Making a 10 1/2" x 10 1/2" square. Really, this is such an easy quilt! I actually love the fact that it is a breeze! After the last few projects I have done, this is a welcome change!
These blocks are for another pillow cover. They are 6 1/2" square for the cowboy print. The four-patch are 3 1/2"squares.
There it is! Simplicity at its finest! So very welcome right now! I feel like doing more!
