Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
I have started a quilt for my second oldest granddaughter. She graduates from High School in a few weeks and has been accepted at UT (Knoxville). Her older sister (by 14 months) is just finishing her freshman year at the University of Alabama.(Roll Tide - LOL) Anyway, I made the older one a quilt for her dorm room and now have started one for the UT student to be. I'm making this very colorful, and of course it will have some TN orange in it. lolol. A local quilt shop owner (just went out of business- rent too high ) gave me instructions. Cut rectangles 5 1/2 by 7 1/2 then sew 1 1/2 inch by 7 1/2 inch sashing onto the long sides. Alternate the blocks - long side, short side - into rows and sew together. I am using my stash of batiks and the sashing will be black. I saw a pic of one she had made and it looked awesome. Very simple. Just a lot of cutting. It is so much fun to make quilts for these special and awesome young ladies.
