Finished Quilt Size: 50” x 50”
The Just for Fun Quilt Pattern was born during a particularly rotten month. We were in the middle of a home renovation project that had taken over our house. The weather was cold and miserable. My kids were sick, I was sick, my husband was sick...and worst of all our old, scrappy dog passed away.
During this time there was a Friday night where the kids were in bed and my husband was working on the renovation. The house was quiet and I was exhausted. I needed a break. So I retreated to an upstairs corner with my sewing machine and some pre-cut fabric squares. I needed to do something for just a little while that was “fun”.
A few hours later, I had finished an entire quilt top and had listened to almost an entire book...and I felt a million times better!!! This simple quilt and the time I spent sewing it changed my attitude. Sometimes we all need a little time alone to create a project “just for fun”.
This pattern, designed for use with pre-cuts, is an easy sew. No intricate cutting, pressing, or measuring is required. Which means that it is a great project when you want to sew something purely for fun! However, it is also a great pattern for beginners who are looking to create their first quilt.
I know that this quilt pattern is going to become one of my staple “go-to” patterns and I hope that you enjoy stitching it up as much as I do.
