Houndstooth Heritage is a no-bias method for creating a beautiful 56"x64" houndstooth lap quilt. For quilters who are comfortable with bias edges, I have included instructions for an optional tube piecing method I call Houndstooth Magic. This speed method is an option to replace steps 1-6 on Houndstooth Heritage. If using Houndstooth Magic, just pick up on step 7 of Houndstooth Heritage to complete your quilt.
Houndstooth Heritage requires 3 yards of both colors for the quilt top. Using the Houndstooth Magic option, you can create the same quilt top using 2 yards of both color.
Binding requirements: 1/2 yard Backing requirements: 3.5 yards
I am a mom of three boys who makes patterns in my free time. I love geometric quilt patterns and admire traditional quilt designs that can be modified or simplified to work with today's fabrics. For free tutorials by me, you can check my blog or Moda Bake Shop.
