I had a really wonderful experience on Etsy recently, and here is the outcome.
I am always looking for simple quilt patterns that I can use to make kits for EBHQ’s Children’s Quilt Project for donation to needy kids around the Bay Area and beyond. These kits are made from donated fabric, and guild members sew them, quilt and bind them, and distribute them to all sorts of organizations that deal with kids that need a cuddly wrapper.
Sooooo, while shopping online at Etsy, I found a great quilt I could adapt to a smaller version for our purposes. Sue Pfau of the sweetjane Etsy shop was wonderful; she gave me permission to use her great Between the Lines pattern for our guild kits.
Check out her shop and the pattern here.
The original pattern uses a jelly roll of fabric, 40 cuts to make a large quilt. My version ends up measuring 38″ x 44″, and uses 22 cuts x the width of the fabric. Here’s my first run at the adapted pattern, with its speedy, slightly weird quilting that I hope a 3-year-old might not notice.
Check out Sue’s shop, which is now one of my favorites.
