Counted Quilts Quilt Patterns
|I have had a request for a school bus quilt pattern. Make it for yourself after years of patiently driving kids to school, or make it as a thank you for those who did it for you.|
Sizes: Main Instruction for Crib 36"x42", with additional smaller 24x28 and larger 48"x56". Border the lap and put it on a twin bed. Trim the small size and make a pillow case.
Skill Level: Beginner The pattern lists fabric yardage, then uses tables to show the number of strips to cut and the number of pieces to cut from those strips. The entire top is then sewn using straight 1/4" seams. The shaping is done with quick corner triangles also called the snowball method. There are some instructional videos on youtube. Just search Counted Quilts Dog instruction.
Selecting Fabrics: Due to the fact that the pattern pieces may be sewn both horizontally and vertically to make the picture we recommend using non-directional fabric.
