A couple of weeks ago I finished a lap quilt and forgot to share it here on the blog. This is the last of the simple quilts I made during the last few weeks of taking care of mom. The simple designed allowed for mindless sewing for the soul and a quick finish.
The idea for the quilt came from seeing this picture on google while searching for quick quilt patterns. Sadly I cannot give credit where credit is due because the google picture links to pinterest and when I get to pinterest this picture isn't anywhere to be found. So somebody is being cheated by google and pinterest.
With that little rant behind us lets get back to the pattern. Here's my EQ7 drawing of a small lap quilt. Since the quilt is basically scraps, except for the red border, I designed by how many 2.5 squares were already cut and ready to sew. The sashing and background fabric were leftovers from a jelly roll and some 2.5 scraps.
The quilt finishes at (64 x 72)
If you'd like to make this quicky quilt here's a quicky visual tutorial/pattern. You'll need some quilting knowledge I'm not going to explain every step n the quilt top making process. Don't forget my blog is printer friendly just scroll down to the bottom of this post, click on the print friendly icon to print this page in pdf format. It will also allow you take out parts of this post you don't want to print.
Use the the picture above and the first full quilt drawing to help you with your layout.
