The instructions for Nicole’s Sofa Quilt will be posted beginning Monday afternoon.
The instructions to this quilt, and the other free patterns offered are linked through the “Free Patterns” bar at the top of the blog.
For those who have not done a Quilt for an Hour project with me, here’s how it works:
- Instructions are posted that should take about one hour of sewing. This is all explained in my Weekend Quilts book but you don’t have to have the book to work on this project.
- Remember that this is not a race. If it takes you a little longer than it takes me, that’s fine . . work at your own pace. The purpose is to break down the instructions into steps for those who don’t have a lot of time to make a quilt.
- Instructions will be posted Monday through Friday (in the afternoons for this project). No instructions are posted on weekends.
- For pieces like half square triangles, quarter square triangles or flying geese, the instructions will simply say “Make 20 half square triangles that measure 2” finished or 2-1/2” unfinished.” This is because there are so many methods to make these pieces and most of us have our own favorite methods. If you’re a new quilter and not sure how to make half square triangles, quarter square triangles or flying geese, there are instructions in most every quilt book, as well as plenty of tutorials on the internet.
Everyone ready to start on Monday?
