Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Use a sewing machine, Rotary cutting

Pattern Description:

This is an original quilt block that forms an 'S' design that reverses and repeats across this happy, scrappy crib quilt. It would be perfect for a new baby or anyone whose name begins with 'S'.

I came up with this pattern accidentally in 2009. When I was playing around with some strip-pieced triangles, the 'S' design appeared. Then I did something a little differently (it took me a little while to figure out what I did) with one of the blocks and the 'S' was reversed. I called that quilt "Twissted."

My most recent version is called "Baby Sister" because I shrank the blocks to make a baby quilt for my newest granddaughter. It is also a good size for a picnic blanket.

Start with a colorful fabric that you love and it will help you pick colors that will look beautiful together in this happy, scrappy crib quilt.
