Make a Quick Quilt for Outdoor Adventures!

TUTORIAL: Quick Lodge Themed Quilt from a Fabric Panel

My husband and I went to the Oregon Coast the other day, bright and early to see the tide pools at low tide. When he said, “We should bring a blanket” I instantly thought of the one I made with the panels and fabric from my Send Me to the Woods fabric collection from Riley Blake Designs! I know… beach and woods might not mix where you are from but look at the photo – the two blend perfectly near us! (We went to Cannon Beach, Oregon – my absolute happy place!) The collection has two color variations of the fabric panel, each with four fun sayings featuring my realistic watercolors of animals.

HOW TO MAKE THIS QUILT:

  • I chose 3 squares from the panel and separated them with 2.5″ strips.
  • I then used strips of 19″ wide fabric with varying heights until I had a piece that measures 55″ h x 19″ wide.
  • Using a 2.5″ strip down the center, I combined the panel section and the strip section.
  • Finally, I added a border with 4″ strips and squares.
  • I made a simple backing, handed it off to the longarm quilter then bound it!
  • We are ready for adventure from the mountains to the coast.

You are curious about the tide pools aren’t you?
