A quilt for myself

Ok, so now I will begin my second quilt attempt.  It's a lot larger than the baby quilt, so I expect many more problems.. Should be fun!  I want to make a quilt for our guest room, which has a twin size bed.  Here are my design spec's and charm/cake squares.  I'm going to cut everything down to triangles and put those together to make squares.  This will give me 10 charm pack squares and 20 cake squares that will all come out to 8"X8" blocks (conveniently).  I am also using a big piece of vintage white fabric that I love.  I just have to go to the store to buy some brown to use between the blocks (I believe this is what they call sashing), and a solid color to use in four places that I didn't have enough blocks for. 


  1. wow! I think this looks like a great plan! I always admire people who plan quilts out...makes so much sense:) I usually dive in and plan later - not always the best option! Love your fabrics too...can't wait to see the finished quilt!

  2. I seem to be making a lot of changes, but it helps me to have an original guideline to go by. Take a look at my newest post and you will see how different it is already starting to look.
