This is for a PDF pattern.


Meet my Grandma's Lawn Chair! This simple and quick pattern creates a basket weave design that reminds me so much of my grandma's lawn chairs I always sat on as a child. This PDF pattern comes in three different quilt sizes: Baby, Toddler, and Lap.

Included in the pattern:
:: Cutting Instructions (for cutting from yardage as well as fat quarters)
:: Piecing Instructions
:: Fabric variations and color schemes
:: Coloring pages for the different sizes (great way to plan your quilt before you cut!)
:: Tips for using directional prints
:: Lots of detail for easy piecing and understanding this pattern
:: Instruction variation for using a jelly roll(s)

17 pages total, with lots of diagrams.
