Together we'll make Penny Patch quilts, step-by-step. This quilt-along is based on my Vintage Tangerine quilt from spring 2013 - a vintage-inspired classic! The main block in the quilt is the 4-penny patch, hence the name. It's definitely one of my favorite quilts so far and so easy to make. You can make a super-manageable baby-sized quilt (42" x 54"), a throw quilt (60" x 72") or a twin-sized quilt (66" x 90"). I recommend the baby or throw quilt for first-timers!
You CAN do this! If you have learned to sew a straight line and are familiar with a rotary cutter (here are some tips), you have what it takes. There's no time like the present to learn to quilt!
