You don't need a pattern to make these little quilts. Begin by choosing a theme, and then sew any size block that suits you. Surround smaller blocks with multiple borders to increase quilt size if you like, or make a larger quilt with one of the big blocks in my quilt block patterns library.
The quilt on the left has two plain borders, a narrow accent border and a wider border to finish it off. The quilt on the right has a plain inner border and a pieced outer border with cornerstones.
To Make this Quilt:
- Choose and assemble a quilt block.
- Refer to my Setting Triangle Instructions to cut the four triangles that surround the quilt block.
- Use my straight border instructions to add borders to the quilt as desired, or sew a border with cornerstones (see page 2 for pieced border tips).
Try This: Four setting triangles are cut from one large square. Instead of cutting triangles that are "just right," make your square (and resulting triangles) larger. The block will appear to "float" within the first border. If your block has a single background fabric, like the basket block on this page, cutting triangles from the same fabric will enhance the float.
