Easy Patchwork Wows with its Simplicity!
The simple design of this quilt proves that patchwork doesn’t need to be complex to wow us with its beauty. The colors and fabric in this quilt make it simply stunning.
Simple patchwork squares in a variety of flannel fabrics make a luscious and cozy quilt.
No exact pattern is provided, but according to the designer, Amy Smart of Diary of a Quilter:
“For this quilt I bought 1/4 or 1/2 yards and cut them into 9″ squares. (You can get four 9″ x 9″ squares from 1/4 yard.) I laid out the quilt 8 squares across x 10 squares down for a 68″ x 85″ throw-size quilt. (You would need about 10 half yards or 20 quarter yards to make this quilt top.)”
Of course, you can alter the size and/or number of squares to produce the size quilt you want. Just be sure to include an extra 1/2″ on both sides of the squares for the seam allowances (1/4″ seams).
Amy has several other helpful tips in the comments section of her post about this quilt. Read through her article and the comments before you begin making your own.
