5th Grade Quilt Revealed!

Here it is - a smaller version of the 5th Grade Quilt from the Precut Primer book (affiliate link), my May Book of the Month choice.

My version features hand picked/hand cut 2 1/2" strips, and a very soft, buttery yellow background.

The initial 10 blocks were cut for chain piecing,


fabric organized for chain piecing


and assembled in around 3 hours.

With the addition of big yellow background squares, I had a 44" x 44" quilt top in no time!

And the quilting - gorgeous! Using rulers and my freehand skills, the quilting design complements the geometric lines of the piecing beautifully.

I must admit I feel I didn't do the Precut Primer book (affiliate link) justice this month -




there are other 'grades' I'd like to be in. So look for this book to be featured again later in the year - when school will be back in session!!

Happy Quilting!



PS - Feel free to use the quilting designs on your quilt!

  7. Hi Susan,
    Ooooh those little sailboats on that blue fabric - I just love it. And blue and yellow together - so very nice. Thank you for all the quilting closeups - you know I am PINing them for later. I've got two quilts that have been waiting to be quilted for months because I'm looking for inspiration! You never know where it will be. Happy Memorial Day! ~smile~ Roseanne
