Last fall I made eight quilts, one for each of Jim’s siblings. When I was done, I wanted to make one for Jim, also. I made a quilt for him a few years ago, but he has it hung on his office wall. It isn’t a quilt to cuddle under.
Here is Jim’s quilt. It’s about 70″ square, plenty big for two people to cuddle under.
The center block of Jim’s quilt is the same as a block used in one of the siblings quilts.
I made another version, also, just because I liked it so much. It became the center of the little quilt for a little girl.
The blocks were inspired by a block I saw on a pattern, so I can’t take credit for originality. You can make this block, too — it’s easier than it looks. With block made, you can make more to make a larger quilt, frame it once with a border and make a table mat, or make a number of borders for an old-fashioned medallion quilt. What you do with yours is up to you!
