If you have been quilting for any length of time you may have some of those “Pillow” pannels in your stash. So why not turn them into a lap quilt?
So here I was given 6 of those “pillow” panel blocks…. these ones just happened to be teddy bears in a flower garden… Hence why my quilt is called “Bears in the Garden”
So I had 6 blocks. Now the hunt was on to find cordinating ( I was once told that the use of “matching” is a faux pas int the quilt world) fabrics. Voila I found one meter of 5 coordinating prints purchased from a Facebook destash site.
What to do? well if I cut these into strips and add them to the blocks then add some borders it should give me a nice size single quilt After much thought and playing I came up this quilt.
Then the hard part came was to write up a pattern for it. This is the very 1st pattern that I drafted up. This actualy went alot smother than I had anticipated. I ended up calling this pattern “Cascading Blocks” The pattern can be purchased from my Craftsy Store at http://www.craftsy.com/user/2395143/pattern-store?_ct=fqjjuhd-ijehu&_ctp=202590,2395143 or by contacting me directly.
The nice thing about this pattern is that the panel blocks can be switched out for the same size pieced block.
I had a girlfriend test this pattern for me and this is her version: She calls it “Golf”
