Pattern Error

We made an error in the number of 1.5" squares needed in the optional size chart for the table runner, small throw, and queen bed. This error also affected the yardage needed for the white print in the throw-size quilt. Please download the corrected Optional Size Chart, below, and add it to your records.

Also, under Assemble Pieced Sashing Strips, Step 3, the pieced strip should be 47.5", not 471.5" as stated.

Pattern Details

The pattern includes directions to make this quilt in five sizes.

  • 22.5x28.5 (table topper)
  • 20.5x44.5 (table runner)
  • 52.5" square (wall quilt or baby quilt, pictured)
  • 68.5" square (small throw)
  • 92.5x100.5" (queen bed)

The featured quilt background fabric is from the Bee Cross Stitch collection by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs. Assorted red fabrics are from the designer's stash.

Quilt-Along Schedule

The quilt-along runs from January 2-February 12. While there is a recommended sewing schedule (see below), you can also sew at your own pace!
