A couple of years ago, Susan Snooks entered this fabulous quilt in one of our Weekly Quilt Contests.
I immediately fell in love with it. It’s a perfect scrappy quilt. Susan’s quilt was adapted from a design she found in an Australian quilt magazine several years ago. She’s not sure who the original designer was.
Susan was kind enough to share her measurements for completing the blocks with me and gave me permission to share them here with you too.
For each block, you’ll need:
(13) 1.5″ squares (medium to dark in value)
(4) 1.5″ x 3.5″ rectangles (light in value)
(2) 4.5″ squares, cut diagonally to yield four half square triangles (medium to dark in value)
Once pieced, the block is squared to 7.5″ unfinished. It’ll be 7″ finished once sewn into the quilt top.
I have been cutting scraps for this project for quite a while now.
Creating the centre mini nine patches is my next leaders and enders project. These little babies are 3.5″ square before adding the sashing strips to finish at 3″.
I created a test block to make sure I had the measurements correct:
I’ve named this quilt already, The Ultimate Scrappy Quilt. Each block has
19 21 pieces! I’m looking forward to working on it over the next several months.
Care to join me? Are you up for the challenge?
Thanks Susan for sharing and inspiring me. I have no doubt this will become my favourite quilt.
