This is the charity quilt I was working on just before I fell. All it needed was to have the binding sewn down by machine. So I pinned it, and made myself sew it day before yesterday. It wasn't as much fun as it used to be, but I did it, and that's what counts, right? I washed it this morning, and hung it on the clothesline to dry.
To make this quilt, you need 4.5 in. squares for the centers and 2.5 in strips for the sides. The blocks are 8 in. square finished. I made 20 blocks.
For each block, cut:
1 square, 4.5 in. x 4.5 in.
2 rectangles, 2.5 in. x 4.5 in.
2 rectangles, 2.5 in. x 8.5 in.
The borders are cut 1.5 in. wide (yellow inner border) and 3.5 in. wide (monkey print).
The final measurements for the quilt are approximately 40 in. wide and 48 in. long.
I machine quilted in the ditch, plus on all 4 sides of the 4 in. squares. I used Warm and Natural batting.
It might seem silly to make flannel quilts in August, but in Wisconsin we always know winter is coming.
I'm too busy worrying about how I'm going to set and quilt it!
Enjoy the summer days!
