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.
