Grandma Mary's Five Patch »
InstructionsI'd use as many different fabrics as possible. I had 8 different reds, and 16 would have been better.
Type of item: Functional
Style: Traditional, Classic, Casual
I used the Redwork Rendezvous collection to get those perfect coordinating reds. I elected to make a scrappy binding using my leftover fabrics, and I am thrilled with how it turned out.
What was your inspiration?
This was a gift for my Mother-in-law. She loves red, so I wanted a bright crisp red/white pattern.
What are you most proud of?
This quilt top was pieced in 6 crazy days.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It's simple, but you need to measure exactly and have a plan for how the fabrics go together or you'll go nuts doing final layout.
