WIP Wednesday has fallen nicely this week: I've just begun a new section on lap quilt patterns on the website and I've nearly finished another lap quilt to go on it. I'm going to try and make some more tutorials for lap quilts - and I may even finish some of them!
The one that I have nearly finished is shown below.
This seemed an ideal pattern to make into a quick and easy lap quilt. I've made the quilt blocks 16" finished size so it only needs four of them to make a 40" lap quilt (including borders).
The large quarter square triangles are begun in the same way using 13.1/4" squares. To turn these into quarter square triangles, place two half square triangles right sides together with the dark part of one triangle against the light part of the other one. Mark a line along the diagonal that's at right angles to the first seam and sew a 1/4" seam either side of the line. This gives you two quarter square triangle units.
Make three more of these quilt blocks and sew them together rotating the blocks so that they all face in different directions.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
Hope to see you again soon.
