How to make a Square Quilt with ONLY Squares

Pin It

Received a phone call from a very dear friend who’s taken the plunge and is learning how to quilt.  HERE – is how she started. The next question is, “How do I do a quilt top? ”

I know when you see a finished quilt it can seem very overwhelming. I’m going to walk you thought making a quilt top over the next few weeks.

Remember, “It’s Only a Square”    Finished Quilt Size:  46”x 46”  1 yard of each color will be more than needed to do this project.

Cut  160 – 2 1/2” x 2 1/2” in assortment of colors (I used a dark, medium and light) approx. 1 yard of each color !

Lay out each block before sewing it together, there is no right way or no wrong way. I’ve included some examples of color placement, these are examples, have fun move colors around and you will need 16 blocks.  Use a ¼” seam allowance and press your seams to one side.
