small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Use a rotary cutter

Pattern Description:

I love the look of scrappy quilts and precuts are perfect for me! With a layer cake, jelly roll or a 4 charm packs you can make this adorable lap quilt. There are thirty blocks set 5 x 6 and the quilt finishes at 55" x 66".

It is named Runaround Sue because of the partial seam piecing used in the block construction. Quilters with a stash of 2.5" strips can create their own scrappy masterpieces easily. A coloring diagram is provided for more adverturous piecers.

  • 55" x 66"--thirty 11" finished square blocks


  • 1 Layer cake OR 1 Jelly Roll or 4 Charm packs, 1.25 yards light fabric for inner block, 3.5 yards backing fabric, 2/3 yard binding fabric
