Twins Week 2, Day 3
This is a repost from last March. I've even surprised myself with so many versions of this quilt!
How in the world have I made so many of these Gretchen quilts? Do you know what I'm talking about? The updated version of the vintage block called, well, Gretchen!
My latest one is made from 16 different Kaffe Fassett fabrics and some awesome shot cottons. I had 7 blocks as samples for when I taught this class 2 years ago as a workshop. I tend to make a LOT of class samples so my students can get an idea of how a pattern looks dressed up in different colors.

OK. Maybe I have another one, but I'm not aware of it. But, can you believe I have so many?!
You can find the pattern for the 25 block green and orange quilt AND also the 16 block Kaffe Fasset print quilt at my Etsy shop. Once you see the method (lots of photos and good illustrations), you will see how easy it is to make any size you want! The 12 page pdf also includes a special trick on extending the size of your border fabric without piecing it!
Thanks for stopping by!
