Quick & Easy Precut Quilt Pattern

From the Designer: "With so many precuts available now, having a way to use the pretty prints in a project is fun. This quick quilted table topper finishes at about 32-inches square, and easily scales up to whatever size you like simply by adding more blocks. Using charm squares, you can easily make the half square triangles, and cut the smaller 2-1/2-inch squares from the same charm size. You can also use jelly roll strips for the four patch units."

Quilting Directions

- Begin with your 5-inch squares, pair the color ones with the background ones, and make 32 half square triangles.

- Square up to 4-1/2 inches.

- Now make 32 four-patch units with your 2-1/2-inch squares. If you have jelly roll strips, you can strip piece these and crosscut to save time.

- Square up to 4-1/2 inches.

- Assemble the block with two four patch units and two half square triangle units. Block should measure 8-1/2 inches at this point.

- Make 16 blocks for the table topper. Assemble the blocks oriented the same way for this quilt.

- Add borders if you wish.  Quilt as desired and bind as usual. This size is great for a table topper, and it also works well for baby quilts.

- For larger quilts, simply make more blocks. Have fun quilting!
