In the Corner Quilt

This is the first quilt that I've made that I actually followed a specific pattern, directions, layout, yardage recommendations, etc. (Although I found the yardage was much more than I actually needed: almost 1 yd. TOO much on the reddish piece and 2/3 yd. TOO much on the blue. For the backing I figured it out beforehand and bought less than recommended there also.)

I found this pattern in the book, Fresh and Fabulous Quilts, by Cheryl Brown. "In The Corner" is the name of this pattern and it is found on pgs. 38-41. This was really an easy, straightforward pattern.

I worked on this quilt over the course of a month as a surprise b-day present for a friend of mine (which still ended up given as a slightly belated gift).

Back View Finished Size: 58" X 76"
I just did a 2" wide apart cross hatch quilt pattern. I'm not a "fancy" design quilter.

Machine binding. I had intended to handstitch it until it became a belated birthday gift.

Here are a couple others quilts from that book that I really liked too:
Every Blooming Thing
Flower Power
Fruit Basket

I don't anticipate making any of the above quilts anytime soon, but I sure thought they were great patterns and fun ideas to mull over.


  1. I love this quilt! I am really loving the cute flower fabric!!

  2. You did such an awesome job on this quilt. Very inspirational. Reminds me of postcards.

  3. It's a beautiful quilt, Renae! I also rarely follow a pattern for a quilt.

  4. Do you have any tips for getting your fabric nice and tight when you pin it for quilting?
