It's not a quilt - or is it?

I get frequent e-mails from Kaye Woods, who is a quilting teacher and pattern designer. She was looking for quilters with blogs - she'd send me a free pattern and I would make the pattern and blog about it. Sounded good to me!
The pattern that I got was a new concept - it's called a Quarter Quilt, and is basically a quarter-sized quilt (duh!), but it looks like a quilt that's folded up at the foot of the bed. It's only one layer though, so you don't get the bulk!
My husband chose the fabrics for it, and I got busy - and I mean busy - it seemed like all of a sudden I needed to do 5 things at once! But, I finally got it finished tonight, and here are some pictures of it. I really like how it turned out!


  1. Jannette, that is lovely! Your hubby is good at picking colours! It looks so pretty on the end of a bed. Or use it as a lap quilt, folded in half of course. I alway like something over my legs when I sit and watch TV.

  2. It's fabulous! I like how you look at it one way and you see the blocks, then another and you only see the larger pattern. It's a great way to punch up a room!

  3. Thanks so much for sewing this up for us, Jannette, you did a gorgeous job on Kaye's Follow The Squares Quarter Quilt! I love the oranges, and I'm not typically an orange person!
    If any of your readers want a copy of the pattern, they can find the info here:

    Thanks again!

  4. I love it! These are very popular now..Bed Runners! I've thought about making some myself. Nice to put some pattern on a plain bed covering...and just enough to keep the tosies warm!

    Looks very nice! and Good color from Hubby!
