A quick little how-to.......
I cut the print into 5" squares and the stripe into 5 x 2-1/2" strips and then cut the white solid into
- sew a white square onto the end of one of the 5 x 2-1/2" rectangles
- sew a 5 x 2-1/2" rectangle to the 5" square
- Finally sew the strip from step #1 to the block set from step #2
Here is a close-up of the blocks.
I arranged mine with the stripes meeting together but you could set the blocks in whatever pattern you would like
Mike gave the present to his friend. Later he asked Mike where did you get the quilt and Mike responded Lorit made it. I think they love the gift even more!
One more pictures.
I had lots of 5" squares left and I just couldn't let them sit there, right? This pattern is my own design.
I went to my scrap bin and cut 5 x 2-1/2" strips at least 2 in each fabric. I then sewed the strip on each side of the 5" square.
I had several 2-1/2" white strips, which were sewn to one side of the block set. Every other row was started with a white strip.
Last step is to sew the rows together. Here is a close-up of this quilt pattern.
