Tutorial | Animals In Love Quilt | by Plum and June
With all the adorable prints in Marine Too, it is difficult to decide which ones to use. Here is an idea that features several of the prints so you don’t actually have to decide! I’ve written approximate measurements below but I really want to encourage you to use them just as “approximates.” I purposely designed this quilt to accomodate whatever size fussy cuts you want to use so just have fun choosing your favorite part(s) of each print.
My quilt finished at 24″ x 30 1/2″.
I think of this quilt as a wall hanging but I know my daughters will find many other uses for it. Based on how they use other quilts in our house, my guesses would be a large doll quilt, a small baby quilt, a doll picnic blanket, and a tablecloth for a tea party.
You’ll need 3/4 yards of background fabric and a variety of prints for the doll size quilt with 2″ borders.
Fussy cut your print triangles (5 1/2″ equilateral) one at a time making sure that the print that you want to showcase is not lost in the seam allowances. Sew the triangles together in a row using either the wedges or triangles on either end. Trim (if using triangles on either end) and measure the row. This measurement will set the width for the rest of the quilt since you won’t want to trim this row again. Mine was 20″.
