Hi, I’m Amy! Also known to some as Alliekatmom. I have a quilt in a day quilt to share with you. This quilt is super easy to make as a last minute baby quilt, or maybe a charity quilt, or maybe your fabulous pet needs a quilt for their very own.
1 Max & Whiskers charm pack
1/4 yard Max Whiskers Grunge Fur 30150 116
1/4 yard Max Whiskers Grunge Elafin 30150 115
1 yard Max Whiskers Grunge Blithe 30150 112
1.5 yard Max Whiskers Bubbles Blithe 30250 12
1. Select 20 squares from your charm pack to be the centers of your blocks.
Blue: You will need to cut 80 – 5″X2.5″ pieces. I start by cutting 10 – 2.5″ strips, then cut the 5″x2.5″ pieces you need from the strips.
Brown: You will need to cut 40 – 2.5″ squares. Start with cutting 2 – 2.5″ strips, then cut your 2.5″ squares from the strips.
Tan: You will need to cut 40 – 2.5″ squares. Start with cutting 2 – 2.5″ strips, then cut your 2.5″ squares from the strips.
3. Sewing the blocks:
Start piecing the centers of the blocks. Use one 5″ square (charm) for the center, and 2 – 2.5″x5″ for the top and bottom. Sew all the 20 blocks in this fashion. You can chain piece these if it is easier.
You will now have two piles that look like this.
I like to put my pins in this direction. This way you don’t have to worry about running them over with your needle, or having to pull them out as you go. The fabric is just as secure pinning this way as it is the other way.
Layout all 20 blocks until you get a layout that you like.
Baste your quilt, I like to use these T pins to hold my quilt down while basting.
A 34×42″ quilt perfect for your pampered pooch or animal lover!
