Bargain Basement Baby Quilt

A while back, I saw Amy's genius Bargain Basement tutorial and knew that I needed to make it.

The way that it is constructed is so cool and it was an opportunity to use my not-exactly-cheap-but-totally-worth-it HRT ruler, so this quilt finally happened.

After spending lots of time searching Amy's blog for the block size she makes in her tutorial (because, of course, I didn't want to have to do any math) I decided to just go for it and make the quilt.  So let me just save you sometime: this quilt ends up about 36" square.  Quite a bit smaller than I was hoping for, but perfect for a baby quilt.

Once you wrap your head around the layout of the quilt, it is a pretty easy project and I think the design packs a lot of punch.  I think if I were going to make this quilt again I would make the half rectangle triangles quite a bit bigger and make a larger quilt.

Finished size: 36" x 36"

This quilt is now listed in my Etsy shop.

  2. Love this! Off to look at the tutorial. I wonder if one could just make more blocks for a bigger quilt? I guess I'll see when I go take a look. :) Thanks for sharing!
