Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This pattern assumes you are a beginner... having said that any and all skill levels can complete this pattern but information is included to allow a beginner to ease through. Sewing a seam with a 1/4" seam allowance is definitely a great skill to have but of course this will work if you are still working on that skill :)

Pattern Description:

This a wall hanging that measures approximately 40" x 40". This quilt uses a variety of techniques that are beginner friendly and playfully friendly for the experienced seamstress. Also, this pattern includes a different layout guide where the blocks can be adapted to make a table runner as an alternative.

Allow me to introduce this pattern item. Summer is such a magical time. There are those lazy summer days mixed in with camping trips and ball games and so on. I really enjoyed making a quilt that would capture just a little bit of the essence of summer. This quilt also uses some of my most favorite techniques. These techniques a beginner can practice to expand their skills or for a skilled seamstress they can ease through them contentedly. I love this playful design and I hope this will give you the same opportunity to make something from the heart to enjoy.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • approximately 40" x 40"


  • Top Quilt - Assorted prints, I suggest using scraps because each color of fabric is used in small amounts. Although if you don't have a scrap stash you could pick up a fat quarter or fat eighth of fabrics in these different colors. Pink, Blue, Green, Yellow, Blue, and Red Gray and Black (very small amount of Gray for Mason Jar lids and Black for Snails) 1/2 Yard of assorted solid lights 1/4 Yard - inner border 1/2 Yard - outer border Black Green, and Pink Embroidery Thread 1/2 Yard of Fusible Webbing, 1/2 Yard of Green Ribbon/Ric Rac Back Quilt and Binding - (2 Yards) - print or solid
