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, 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!  

What is your favorite 'easy' block?  



  1. I enjoyed very much reading this...As simple as it is, the quilt is absolutely beautiful! That cowboy fabric is something else too.:)

  2. What a fantastic quilt! Love the simple design and the cowboy background fabric. How awesome that she was able to find more for another quilt! Looks like a fun project!

  3. Sometimes simple wins. I love how a simple pattern, either piecing or quilting, can result in amazing quilts. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I'm working on my first-ever nine-patch and am really happy with it so far. There's something to be said for simple geometry -- it lets the fabric be the star of the quilt.

  5. This is just a wonderful quilt and I just love that cowboy fabric!

  6. I think one of my favorite simple blocks is just plain patchwork squares. I have made a lot of simple quilts in the last year. A great finish, and so neat you could find more fabric.

  7. This is a great fun quilt. I did that same pattern along time ago but used 2.5 inches in the four patch. It was my go to baby quilt to make. I love the bigger squares.
