Dinosaurs for everyone…

This week I finished up my Lizzy House Dinosaur quilt….

dinosaurs for all quilt

Over the summer I taught a wonderful group of young ladies (aged 10 – 14) how to make a quilt.  Blocks from my test run of that class are what made up this wonderfully fun quilt…

The pattern is a simple rail fence variation….

all you do is cut strips 3 inches wide by the length of the fabric (usually 42 inches long)… then you sew four of these strips together… then you cut out 10 1/2 inch blocks… easy peasy.

The highlight of this quilt is of course the dinosaurs…. oh how I love those dinosaurs….

Oh and there is butterflies as well, of course….

  1. Even though the pattern is the simple rail fence, the way you cut the”Pearl” fabric gives motion to the quilt and makes it so much more interesting. Love your work.
