Without cutting them up too much, I whipped up this quick block.
And this quilt, for sale here.
Then this one, for sale here.
I just couldn't stop, they came together so quickly. Without further ado, here's the pattern:
2+2=5? Pattern:For each block you need:
2 - 5" squares (charm squares)
1 - 2 1/2" x 5" rectangle (cut a charm square in half)
2 - 3 3/4" x 11 1/2" rectangles
To assemble, sew the 2 1/2" x 5" rectangle in the middle of the 2 5" squares. This makes the center 'column'. Then sew one 3 3/4" x 11 1/2" rectangle to either side of the center. You will have a 11 1/2" block.
Lay out all your blocks and switch them around until you like how the second background fabric is spaced. Then sew together the blocks and your done.
To make a baby size quilt (44" square) you need a total of 16 blocks.
1 charm pack of 40 squares*
1 yard background fabric
1 FQ second background fabric
1 1/2 yards backing fabric
batting for 44" by 44" top
To make a twin size quilt (66" by 88") you need a total of 48 blocks.
3 charm packs of 40 squares each*
3 yards background fabric
3/4 yard second background
5 yards backing fabric
twin size batting
*Any 5" squares will work for this, you don't have to use charm packs. I do a 5" swap with the guild I attend and those squares would work great in this too.
For the 'All Things Boy' quilt I used 5 inch I-spy blocks I've collected.
Edited to add: I would LOVE to see any blocks/projects you create with this pattern! Feel free to join & share in my Flickr group: Your Lyanna Jean Designs.
