This is one of those quilts that when you step back, or even just squint a bit you can really see the pattern. I love woven looking quilts (like this, and this, and this!), and this one is so simple to put together.
It's made from a Jelly Roll (pre-cut 2 ½" strips) or you can cut strips from yardage.
This is only the second pattern I've written with the blocks set on-point (on the diagonal). The blocks are laid out and sewn into diagonal rows, and the edges of the quilt top are trimmed straight.
If you've never made an on-point quilt, this is a good place to start with easy big blocks!
I made this quilt with just a few days until photos were due for the fabric line, so I had to baste and quilt this one myself in an afternoon. You can barely see the quilting lines, but I did some simple straight lines ¼" away from the seams in one direction.
It's not what I would have picked if I had more time (a.k.a. if I hadn't procrastinated until the day before), but it works!
Finn and Jane have become the best little friends. It's probably because she's short and she always has food, but he is so patient and careful with her even when I know she's driving him crazy.
Plus he'll pose for a photo...will work for treats!
Puppy not included (depending on the day).
