Last night was our “Yard Sale” for our Quilt Guild. At the end of the evening, there was a Show and Tell of the 24 Comfort Quilts that members have made over the last month for patients at the Cancer Center. It is super inspiring to see the beautiful quilts that are made as donation quilts. One of those quilts really caught my eye, and I just had to draw it in EQ to see how hard it would be to make. It gives the illusion of a plaid, but I also thought it could be made up as a scrappy quilt too. Here are some pictures. I think you will see how she made it.
This would work up in a flash with my AccuQuilt GO! 2-1/2″ strip cutter and the 4-1/2″ strip cutter.
Here’s an EQ graphic of it in green–Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
And this is a diagram of how it’s put together. It is a row of 4″ light square and 4-patch alternating beginning and ending with the light 4″ (finished) square. And a second row of 4″ dark square and 4-patch alternating beginning and ending with the four patch.
Just for good measure – here’s a scrappy one in bright Spring colors.
Have a Happy Day!
