Quilt Along: In and Out Quilt – Week 2 of 5

Welcome back! Are you ready for Week 2 of the Quilt Along?

Here we go!

This is a very personal project for me, since it is the first pattern I will be publishing in, what I hope, is a long line of patterns yet to come.  I’ve already got many designed, and some made.

This week we are going to be cutting the pieces we will need to make our quilt.


Cutting Instructions:

  • Cut 48 five-inch squares of pastel fabric or use charm pack squares
  • Cut 48 five-inch squares of white fabric
  • Cut 24 – 4 1/2-inch pastel squares
  • Cut 96 – 4 1/2-inch white squares

Here are the pieces I cut for my quilt:
