The pink 16 patch was finished last night – in addition to being the 3rd quilt bound during my binding marathon this week, it’s also my 5th UFO finish for the year!

Now I know we don’t need a pattern for a 16 patch but isn’t it nice when someone else does all the work for us? This is the 3rd quilt I’ve made using these dimensions – the individual squares are 3.5 inches finished (strips are cut 4 inches)  but what I love about this block is that they’re made from fat quarters and included in the instructions was a quick reference to show how many fat quarters to use to make quilts of a certain size. You KNOW I have lots of fat quarters … I can’t seem to resist them. 

See how helpful that is? The first time I made one I linked to the tutorial but since then the blog has been deleted so I spent some time searching the Internet archives today to find a link to share with you. It took a while to load on my iPad so be patient. I have no idea if the archived copy will also disappear at some point so I suggest you print it out if you want to keep a copy.

    Love the quilt! And thanks for doing the math! For free! I don’t buy many patterns as I don’t mind doing the math but…..I LOVE when someone else does it. Saves valuable time. Thank you!

    I can see now that this one is pink and not red as I originally thought. Very pretty! I have a weakness for fat quarters too, but I’ve done a lot of digging into those fat quarters in the past year and would now have a hard time finding too many that could go together into a single project. All of these different shades of pink work together so well.

    Oh I love the pink.
    I am working on one of these at the moment for my almost 16yrs grandson, who tells me that he really only likes black. I am using solid black and black/grey prints.
    Set 5 x 7 blocks for a 70 x 98 quilt.
    I thought it might be too dark, but so far is looking pretty good.

    Enjoying your photo shoot out back.
    Thanks to little Finn’s necessity it’s a handy place and the colors seem to pop there on the fence.

    Thanks for doing the research. It’s always nice to have the math done by someone else. The older I get, the lazier I am about figuring things out. The most math I attempt these days is to add the numbers from the security question on your blog or my checkbook.
    The pinks in the quilt look great together. I like the textured look16 of the quilting.
