Summer school is a free pattern from Missouri Star Quilt Company. I had saved it for a day when the quilty aunt would make a new quilt for new born in the family. The time has come, and suddenly I have 3 nieces (one yet to be born) and a nephew. What more joy than this for a quilter aunt whose Pinterest Quilt board is overflowing with interesting pins.
My bright “Summer School” baby quilt is made entirely from my stash and picking all these lovely shades from my cupboard just makes my heart full. Well! Well! Some people call it fabric hoarding, but how is that a bad thing when it can produce fabric for such pretty quilts 🙂
The quilt is easy but is fairly time consuming. No quilt is as easy as it looks. For people who think quilts are fast, here are the distinct steps of this one stated below. And that’s just the quit top, border and quilting are yet to be taken up.
- Cut the charm pack, since my fabric pull was handpicked carefully from my stash
- Cut the white background fabric and the triangles for on point blocks
- Sew the snowballed corners to create the fish fins
- Press and trim them
- Sew the 4 patch fish
- Make the fish tail
- Join the opposite triangles for on-point block
- Press and join the other two tringles
- Press and trim
- Sew the blocks to make the quilt top
I just loved how it turned out. Now for some basic stats and pretty pics.
