Charlie Brown Project Linus

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That I can produce these quilts at all! Prior to April 2012, I had only made one quilt, a log cabin pattern, 21 years ago and never quite got around to quilting in all my 40+ sewing years. It was time. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Read the instructions for the Lil' Twister if you purchase one, and perhaps learn from my mistake that I should have chosen a smaller print for it to show the pinwheels better. While I like the quilt, the overall print on some of the fabrics is too large for this tool. Some of the pinwheels are near impossible to 'see' in the overall view. But I am sure some child will enjoy it anyway :)

What you will need

  • 100% cotton fabric I purchased as "scraps" at the annual tent sale of Keepsake Quilting in June. I used 100% pellon cotton batting. I used a tool called Lil' Twister to create the pinwheels out of assembled blocks.

Q&A with NB Originals

Surfside6 asked:
This pattern gives me a headache to think about, so I certainly can appreciate your effort to do it. Have done a few Linus ones myself, for my church group, and it is so rewarding. And they don't mind if there's a little "oops" in it.
NB Originals answered:
Yes, the wee ones won't mind that the prints are not ideal for this quilt :) But I do love making the quilts for the kids, it fills my heart.
