More Quilting Dreams
I am planning a new quilt! This will be a wedding gift needed by January 16, 2010. As usual, it needs to be a quick quilt, but it needs to be "cute", too. This pattern is in the November, 2008 issue of McCall's Quick Quilts.
This simple pattern only requires 5 inch squares, but by carefully arranging the tan/beige/cream blocks, the quilt has depth. The darkest squares are used on the outside and slowly fade to the lightest squares in the center. The tan/beige/cream blocks are alternated with various colored squares.
I already have what I hope is enough of the colored 5 inch squares that were a gift to me from a friend. They are 5 inch charm packs!!! No cutting at all needed.
I will have to purchase some tan/beige/cream fabric to make the alternating squares, but that will be easy and I already have some in my stash to get me started.
What do you think?
