Add More Blocks for a Bed-Sized Quilt!
Start with a jelly roll of 2 1/2″ strips and a neutral fabric for this baby or lap quilt. That makes fabric selection easy and reduces the amount of cutting so you can quickly jump into sewing.
This is also a great project for leftover strips. Choose colors and print styles a child will enjoy or create a more grown-up combination for a lap quilt.
Any color theme will be wonderful in this quilt. You can also play with value placement and print styles to give the quilt different looks.
Solid white produces crisp contrasts, or use a solid tint for a softer look.
The finished quilt, designed by Sue Pfau from Sweet Jane, is 48″ x 60″. Make it larger by adding more blocks.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
