A couple of people requested that I do a block layout tutorial and since I apparently didn’t take very many pictures of my quilt I thought I’d just go ahead and make another quilt and document it well. So first I will give you a pattern for a lap or baby quilt. Then I’ll give you the layout I used for the blocks in this quilt.
So first, the pattern for the quilt I call “Katie Squared”.
– 2 charm packs (I used Ruby by Moda)
– 1.25 yards of white for white charms squares
– 1/2 yard of white for border
– a half yard for binding (I used a red polka dot from Bliss by Moda)
– fabric for backing
|My four groups|
In round two, you will add 12 more charms.
The third and final round adds 10 more charms.
|Round 3, first block completely laid out|
|Second block, it’s the one on the top|
|Third block, on the right|
|Fourth block on the lower right. Whole quilt laid out|
|See how I pressed?|
|All rows sewn and pressed|
|See, ends not meeting. That’s a good thing.|
|All blocks sewn together.|
