Small Quilt pattern...

Hello, 
I finished the love quilt today.

It's a simple pattern if you would like to make one.

Here's what you need...

  • 1 color fabric, your choice, for backing
    • 38" square
  • 4 coordinating or contrasting fabrics of your choice, for the pieced top.
    • 1/2 yard each of two colors for the large nine patch (in this one blue and pink)
      • cut four 9½" blocks from each. (4 blue blocks and 4 pink blocks)
    • 1/3 yard each of remaining fabrics for two borders (in this one hot pink and green)
      • for first border cut two 2½" x 27" strips and two 2½" x 31" strips.
      • for second border cut two 3" x 31" strips and two 3" x 36" strips
  • Batting - 36" square

All together now...
  1. Sew three rows of the 9½" blocks.
    1. first row - sew three 9½" blocks together (blue to pink to blue)
    2. second row - sew three 9½" blocks together (pink to blue to pink)
    3. third row - repeat as for first row
  2. Sew the three rows together, making the large nine patch block (27" square)
  3. Sew the two 2½" x 27" strips to two ends of the large nine patch block
  4. Sew the two 2½" x 31" strips to the remaining sides of the large nine patch block
  5. Sew the two 3" x 31 strips to two ends as in step 3.
  6. sew the 3" x 36" strips to remaining sides as in step 4.
  7. Sandwich backing, batting and pieced top together and pin or baste for quilting.
  8. Quilt or tie as desired.
  9. Bring the backing edges to the front for binding and stitch down.
