We've made it to week six of the Sweet Sixteen Quilt Along - are you hanging in there? If this is your first visit to the quilt along, here's what we've done over the past weeks.
Need to know how to make a sixteen-patch blocks, or learn some new techniques? Check out the post from week one. (And wait until you see the new technique I learned today - totally cool!!) Then in the following weeks, I showed some ways to use your sixteen-patch blocks...
Sixteen patch blocks and pinwheels made up week two's quilt...
Week three showed a more modern take on sixteen patch blocks...
This giant one-block quilt was the offering for week four...
And this low volume postage stamp quilt was the offering for week five!
This week, our quilt is like a visit from an old friend!
It was a little bit windy the day I took these pictures...
So I laid it on the ground to get a good clear shot!
...and the back.
Now, I say that this quilt is like a visit from an old friend because I referred back to an old Hands2Help post (April 2012!) for the tutorial! Amanda Jean Nyberg of Crazy Mom Quilts shared the tutorial with us that year, and I put it on my bucket list. When I was looking for 16-patch quilts to share, I found that tutorial and decided it was time to finally make it!
I used a couple of salesman's samples of "Meet The Gang" that I picked up at an AQS quilt show a few years ago. They had been languishing on the shelf waiting for me to do something with them for far too long!
I decided to add borders to mine to make it a bit larger - this quilt is a great size for a baby or small toddler, about 42" square. It's a great versatile pattern, easy to size up or down.
And I used some of the larger prints from "Meet The Gang" for the back. I love a reversible quilt!
So that's our sixteen patch quilt for this week! Have you decided on the design for your sixteen patch blocks yet? There's still a few more options on the horizon - I started working on next week's just this weekend. I think you'll really like it!
