It is called Katie's quilt. The video has some of the information, but I couldn't find any information about the layout. So I used the quilt hanging in the background as my starting point, and got out my trusty graph paper.
When I want to design a quilt, I go to graph paper, a mechanical pencil, and color pencils. As you can see, if you look, you can find all kinds of little and bigger graph paper books. This is the time of year to look. Lot's of back to school things out. Target has interesting little notebooks of graph paper year round, I found the composition book of graph paper at Staples. Barnes and Nobles carries the Moleskine brands which are really nice, but more expensive. I carry one with me all of the time. you never know when inspiration will strike.
Anyway, I came up with this:
|sorry, blogger reverts photos back to original orientation.|
I used 5" charms for the 4 patch blocks
You would need ;
Four patch blocks - 140 - out of these you will make thirty 16 patch, with 20 four patch left over
Sashing blocks - 49 at 4.5 x 8.5
star point blocks 192 2.5" squares
inner border finishes at 2"
Outer border finishes at 6"
Use this video as a guide for making the scrappy four patch
This works great. I just grabbed some black Moda Marble off of my shelf. I didn't have enough to make blocks for a twin size, but there was enough to make a smaller lap size quilt. 60 x 72 I had to get enough finished to put in the newsletter
I hope that you are all making it though the summer. I am going to finish up my newsletter and head out to find some sweet corn for dinner. Have a good weekend!!
