Quick Quilt

This quilt is a gift for a teacher friend and, looking at the calendar and being really honest with myself, I knew it needed to be quilted this weekend or it wouldn’t be finished for the last week of school.

So, a flurry of sewing, quilting and binding later, here is a quilt!

It is a simple checkerboard using 2-1/2″ squares.  Inner and outer borders are 1-1/2″ and the center border is also 2-1/2″ squares.  The quilt finishes at 50″ x 70″.

I mostly used several 2-1/2″ mini charm packs, plus a few 5″ charm packs cut into quarters.  Just open them up, toss in a basket like a salad, grab and sew.

Glad to have it finished.  I plan to gift it on May 25.  It seems a long ways away.

  1. That was a fast one! It is beautiful and the quilting is great – did you longarm it somewhere? Whatever the occasion of the gifting, it will be appreciated, I’m sure!
