It was such a pleasure to finish this Rosewood Lane Twin quilt! I love how bright and happy it is.
Rosewood Lane is the perfect fat quarter stash-busting quilt pattern. In keeping with the scrappy theme, the binding is also cut from the fat quarters, if you choose.
Make it scrappy without a lot of thought
Rosewood Lane looks like it's thrown together, but rest assured it's all blocks that you can sit down and chain stitch. Sometimes it's great to sew a quilt that doesn't require much thought about fabric placement, and this is it! I didn't even place these blocks on the design wall to check fabric placement. I placed the blocks into piles to sew into rows, only making sure that the same fabrics weren't next to each other block by block. Then when I assembled the rows together, I just grabbed a row and didn't check for identical fabrics next to each other. It worked out amazingly well; I only found one place where the same fabric met from row to row, and it's right there in the picture below. Of course, using a wide variety of fabrics minimizes the same fabrics being placed together.
This quilt was made as a custom order, and I was *tickled* beyond measure when she chose the black/white diagonal stripe binding rather than plain gray! That was my first choice, too! The pattern calls for cutting the binding from the fat quarters, but of course, you don't have to do that and can choose something fun and zippy for your quilt, too!
All the sizes
Rosewood Lane includes all the sizes - Wall Hanging, Baby, Throw, Twin, Queen, and King. I'm all about spoilin' you with all the sizes to give my patterns true value. I love to do all that math!
This quilt was quilted using a Maze edge-to-edge design on my Handi Quilter Fusion with ProStitcher longarm machine. This is a computerized machine, so the stitching ends up nearly perfect, as long as I set it up correctly. :)
