Great job! How big is the quilt? How big are the squares in the 9-patch and 4-square?

Is it bad that I can recognize several of the same fabrics from MY stash?????

Tiffany, we are on a great shcedule, so I do it while naps and when he goes to bed at night! Also, my husband works nights so he is home during some days and I get some free time.

Tivi, you have good taste in fabric then! The blocks work out to 9" overall. So the 4 squares are 4.25 and the 9's are 2.75 (finished, I think...).

hey I am surprised to see that how you took so much time from your busy schedule for it. I can not spare more than 40-45 minutes. You are just awesome. Your designs are always terrific.

A long time ago I made myself a crazy looking quilt. While it was really cozy, it is too old, so recently I bought a new one. The woman who I bought it from created patchwork, which really holds great. I will take a couple photos and upload it here.

my sister died 4 years ago and my mom died 3 years ago, with in a year apart. my dad died 18 years ago. I would love to make a quilt out of their clothes. But have never done a quilt before. is there an easy pattern for someone that has never made a quilt before?

I recommend going to your local quilt store and asking their advice. Take the materials you want to work with and show them...they would be a great resource for you. You could even enroll in a class and get their guidance along the way.

I am not a quilter but my daughter is and one thing I have learned while watching her grow as a quilter is that you want to practice on something else first. Don't cut into your one of a kind fabric until you are confident the pattern, style, etc. is exactly what you want. You only get one shot and you would be heartbroken if you didn't LOVE the final product.

What a wonderful heirloom to be treasured. The perfect way to honor your family. Good luck with your quilting adventure. Please share your finished project...we would love to see it.

There are a LOT of easy quilt patterns for beginner quilters. One that will allow almost any color combination, and a common quilt that children can learn to do is known as a postage stamp quilt. Cut your squares 2.25 inches each which allows for a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Cut a ton of squares at once from MANY fabrics. Sit down and randomly sew 3 of them together in a strip. Make MANY strips, then randomly sew 3 strips together to form a 9 patch block. Once a bunch of blocks are done, begin to randomly stitch those together until you have the desired size of the quilt top. You can find the measurements for standard quilt sizes by doing a Google search.

Another fairly easy scrap quilt is known as an Irish Chain. You should be able to find instructions for it online.

I am hand stitching a postage stamp quilt, and have been working on it for a LONG time now. I could probably have had it finished by now if I used my machine, but I want a 100% hand pieced quilt.
