New Friday Tutorial: The Super Simple Squares Quilt

This Super Simple Squares Quilt is exactly what I've been looking for!

Yesterday I googled, “How to boil an egg.”

Don’t laugh! I have boiled an egg before. But sometimes the yolk is too soft, and sometimes it turns green. And the shell never, ever comes off nicely.  So I went seeking wisdom, and guess what? I actually learned a thing or two! (Add salt to the water; the eggs will peel like magic. True story.)

Today’s Super Simple Squares Quilt is as easy as boiling an egg – maybe easier- but you can count on Jenny to show you the slickest, most efficient way to make it.

It’s tried and true and requires very little thought/design ability. It’s quick, easy, and beautiful! That makes it especially perfect for those last minute holiday gifts or donation quilts!

    I like the simple look of this quilt. I make it slightly differently. I make a 9 patch of 5 inch squares with the 4 corner squares made from the feature prints, the center square is a cornerstone fabric and the remaining 4 squares the background (sashing) fabric. Then cut through the center vertically and horizontally (like for a disappearing 9 patch) and arrange the resulting blocks in rows. Each resulting block has sashing on two sides and a cornerstone as well as a feature (uncut) print. Sew the blocks in rows and then the rows together. No need for separate sashing rows as it is part of the block.

    I’ve been making this quilt…the diagram above shows *9* rows of 5″ squares, but in the video (which I’ve watched a few times!), Jenny mentions there are *10* rows of 5″ squares. I can’t ever see the bottom of the quilt in the video, so I’m not sure which number is correct.
