This is a fun, great beginning quilt that is easy to put together. I wanted the grey and pink blocks to make diagonal lines on the quilt. It’s subtle with a scrappy look, but if you used two solid colors, it’d be very striking.
Also, I’m giving away the fabric to make this cute quilt top! To enter, just leave a comment telling me how long you’ve been quilting and anything else you want to say so we can get to know each other. 🙂
Here’s how to make it. You’ll need:
- 16 squares of one color (I used 5″ grey squares)
- 16 squares of another color (I used 5″ pink squares)
- 32 neutral squares (same size as the others)
Now lay them out into 4 rows of 4.
Row 1: Grey four patch, pink, grey, pink.
Row 2: Pink four patch, grey, pink, grey…etc.
Cute and quick, I love simply patchwork quilts!
I pieced the backing for this one (mostly because I didn’t want to go all the way to Joanns) 😉 And used the backing as the binding.
Don’t forget to leave a comment to enter the giveaway! And if it’s your first time visiting me here at Brights on White – Welcome! I love teaching others how to quilt. I learned mostly from reading quilting blogs, and there is so much great stuff available. I hope some of my tutorials and work will help you in your creative endeavors.
And check back in a month or so for my upcoming Quilt-Along. Thanks!
