I cut the pieces for her quilt a good two years ago and I actually used a pattern for the squares (I was a newbie sewer, yo) so I won't share steps... also, I haven't a clue where I got the pattern or I'd for sure give a shout out!
Anywho, even though I'm not giving steps, since they're not mine to give, you can probably figure it out by looking at the following pictures I took-
|How ya like that fancy ironing board? Yep- it's a towel doubled up on the kitchen counter. :)|
|Holy freaking MOLY, I used to be a terribly inaccurate cutter!!! Don't worry, I squared the mother up. :)|
It was a super duper dark quilt.
And it was teeny. Womp, womp... :(
This happens to me a lot- making things that aren't big enough! Goes back to not following patterns, I suppose. This situation worked out perfectly though because it gave me the opportunity to add some white sashing to both lighten it up and make it bigger! And we know how much I love adding white sashing to quilts. :)
Mom loved it! :)
