I've had a few people ask about the crib quilt made with the Puss in the Corner blocks.
Here's a tutorial to help you make your own version.
Supplies for a crib quilt measuring 40" x 56"
1.30 metres of light fabric (1 3/8 yards) cut into 18 - 9 1/2" squares or use layer cakes, trimmed.
18 dark and medium 9 1/2" squares or use layer cakes, trimmed.
.40 metre of binding fabric (1/2 yard) cut into 6 - 2 1/4" strips.
1.60 metres of backing (1 3/4 yards)
|Place two squares, both right side up, on top of each other.|
|Cut through both squares 2 1/2" from all four raw edges.|
|Shuffle the corners and centres so that you have two opposite blocks. Repeat with all pairs of squares.|
|Stack them up and chain piece the sections together. Press open or toward darks.|
|Chain piecing the units.|
|Two seams to go!|
|Arrange the blocks alternating a dark centre with a light centre.|
Sew together in rows. Quilt and bind!!!
I think the light fabric that I used was a bit too busy for the design but I was only using fabrics from my stash and that fabric had been living in my cupboard far too long!
