For this men's quilt (son, grandson?) I made eight quilt blocks and the finished size of the quilt is 50" by 82", a decent size for a single bed.
Each nine patch unit uses two strips of dark, light, dark fabric and one strip of light, dark, light fabric. You will need eight of these.
The video might help:
Sew a 38.1/2" strip of black sashing across the bottom of each pair of quilt blocks. Sew all the pairs of blocks together in four rows so that the quilt measures two blocks across by four rows down. Add one more 38.1/2" black strip across the top of the quilt so that there is a strip of sashing at the top and bottom and between each row. Sew two strips of black sashing down the sides of the quilt - these will need to be 82.1/2" long.
I think this makes a great uncluttered design for a man.
Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope to see you again soon.
