Sew and Tell with a Bonus

I’m celebrating! Not only is it Amy’s Sew and Tell and I have something to show. It is also my 300th post. So to celebrate I’ve been saving the simple pattern to give to you.

Consider it a thank you from me. Thanks for taking time out of your busy life to come visit, to read and comment on my silly life and quilting posts. I have so enjoyed getting to know you. And I appreciate your visits so much. It is the same pattern as this quilt I made for some mindless sewing only smaller and I didn’t put any stars on it. You will need two charm packs and a 3/4 yard of fabric for borders. I used these. Next cut 5 of your charms in half. Then sew one of these to eight of your charms to make a row. Make nine rows.

For some reason this pic is turned and I can’t get it to turn back. Anyway, start your first row with a half charm square. With the next row end with a half charm square. Continue alternating rows for remaining seven rows. Then sew your rows together.

For borders cut 5-5″ strips the width of the fabric. Measure your sides. They should be 42 1/2″. Cut two of your strips to fit and sew them on the sides. Now measure your top and bottom. It should measure 48 1/2″. Sew the remaining three strips together and cut two strips to fit. Sew these on the top and bottom. Now pat yourself on the back you have just created a lovely flimsy.

Thanks again for coming to visit. I hope you enjoy your quilt.
