After stealing away time here and there to sew the past week I have a pretty stack of blocks! These will be a Twin size quilt for Sophie.
This quilt was a big fat pain to cut out because I wanted so many fabrics in it, but after cutting it went together quickly with chain piecing.
This block makes a perfect Twin size quilt (66” x 88”) if you make 48 blocks, 8 rows of 6 blocks each.
Here’s a quick diagram of the sizes to cut your strips if you ever want to make it!
Again these are the cut sizes…not the sizes after sewing! The center is a 2 ½” square and the rest of the strips are 2”. I could get all these pieces plus some extras out of 2 strips 2” x width of fabric” (except the 2 ½” square).
In my quilt I’m only using 3 main colors, and lots of white! So it will probably be dirty 2 seconds after I put it on my 2 year old’s bed… but it’s worth it. Luckily Oxi-clean and I are already BFF’s. ;)
