Tutorial for H2H

Today is Tips and Tutorials day for Hands2Help over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. One of this year's charities is Jack's Basket, and they're looking for small quilts, about 36".

I have a 36" quilt called Framed Nine Patch that's fun to make, using a technique similar to that in my book Cut and Shuffle Quilts. You start with a simple framed block, cut it into parts, scatter the parts around and reassemble nine patch blocks, and voila, a fast and easy little quilt. Here's a soft version in sweet pastel corals for a baby girl:

And a version in blues made back in 2005 for a baby boy:

The tutorial starts here and includes my recommendations for fabric selection.

The tutorial continues with Part 2 here. There's also an option for a border if you'd like to make the quilt a little bigger.

Check out the other fun tutorials and tips - and treats, too! - over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

Thanks, Sarah, for once again organizing Hands2Help!
