This is a terrific quilt for a beginning quilter. And it's a really fun and relaxing project for an experienced quilter. Everyone wins!
What makes it so easy? Well, let me tell you. . .
It's all straight lines. No diagonals, no points, no curves. Just nice straight lines. Easy to cut and easy to sew.
I designed the quilt to be forgiving of small errors. Relax! Your seams don't match up? Not a big deal! The only places where seams come together are where they're all background fabric - so any errors will be pretty much invisible. I planned it special that way. :-)
I tell you exactly what you need to do every step of the way - including how to efficiently cut out your fabric. I have quilt diagrams, specific yardage requirements and cutting instructions for five common quilt sizes. None of this "easily sizes up or down" nonsense! Do you want to do math or do you want to make a quilt? I thought so. :-)
I link to videos throughout the pattern for all the skills you'll need to complete the project - from using rotary cutting tools to sewing a straight line, layering, basting, quilting, and binding. I don't care if you've never even used a sewing machine before - you can totally make this quilt!
See how easy it's going to be? Are you ready to make it? Here are the sizes included. . .
Crib Quilt (50" wide x 50" tall)
Napping Quilt (60" wide x 70" tall)
Twin Quilt (70" wide x 90" tall)
Queen Quilt (90" wide x 90" tall)
King Quilt (100" wide x 90" tall)
The only other thing you need is some batting. I especially like Warm & Natural 100 % cotton. Oh - and get two spools of all-purpose thread to match your background fabric. That's it!
After your purchase of this item you'll receive an email allowing you to download the pattern instantly. That's right - service at the speed of light!
Happy quilting! You're going to have so much fun! :-)
