If you can make nine 9-patch blocks you have the beginning of this pretty project. A quick and easy lap quilt that is a great way to use a border print or just three fabrics that you love. The pieced center goes together quickly, and a striped border makes a great accent for this fun quilt. Perfect for a beginner, you have the choice of a mitered border, or a straight set border for this quilt.
I have been quilting for 25 years, and thoughout all these years one of my favorite things has been to design my own projects. I have been challenged during the last few years to try my hand at actually writing these ideas up and sharing them with others - so here I am! It's always a challenge to learn new skills, and pattern writing is a tricky one as people all learn in different ways! I try to include plenty of illustrations in my patterns as well as clear written instructions. I prefer rotary cutting, but do include templates as necessary. EQ7 is a wonderful help for drafting blocks and making templates, I couldn't do what I do without this!
