Unit Block

I got the idea to make this quilt here. I love her solid and print quilts. I started this one at my Kieve quilt retreat. Lots of cutting in preparation before the retreat. I wanted a block that would be easy and all ready to go. This one certainly filled the bill. The units are all cut 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches. I had a stack of solid fat quarters that were waiting for a good project. The prints were all from my stash. I still have a big stack of rectangles cut out but this is the size quilt I wanted. I have nine rows of eight blocks. The blocks are 8 inches square so the top is 64 x 72 inches. Just the right size for curling up on the sofa.

I will need to find backing fabric before I can start quilting. I think I will do a meandering stitch for this quilt. A meandering design will make it quick and easy to stitch.
