Good morning! Remember this project? Yep that’s right, it’s still lying around! I do have a very bad habit where once a project gets started, I think about another one and start that one too! (It’s a wonder things actually get done around here… especially with an almost 2 month old!) My very dear friend Breezy and I recently started having a craft day once a week together, and that’s been amazing! She mentioned that she really wanted to see this project finished, so that was some good motivation for me. 🙂
Since I last blogged about the quilt, I decided it needed to be bigger. There are a total of 16 fabric squares, so originally I was thinking a 4×4 little throw quilt. But since I found a cute crochet pattern, I decided to alternate and put crochet squares in between! I think it will look really cute!
This pattern is really simple too. I played with it until it was the same size as the fabric squares I made with crochet around the outside. Here’s the pattern for you…
Crochet Textured Quilt Square
*For this project I used a Red Heart Super Saver Jumbo Skein of Yarn in the color of Aran, and it turned out very soft and was super affordable! You can use a worsted weight yarn of the same weight as well.
Ch – Chain
DC – Double Crochet
SL st – Slip Stitch
TR – Triple Crochet
Row 1: Ch. 1 then 1 SC into the 2nd stitch from the hook. 1 SC in each stitch until the end.
Row 2: Ch. 2, turn, 1 DC into 2nd stitch, and each stitch until the end.
Row 3: Ch. 1, SC in each stitch until end.
Row 4: Ch. 1, turn, (*1 SC into first stitch, 1 TR in next stitch.) Repeat pattern until end of row.
*Repeat Rows 1 – 4, 3 times
Row 13: Ch. 1, SC in each stitch until end.
Row 14: Repeat Row 2
Row 15: Repeat Row 3
Row 16: Ch. 1, SC in each stitch until end. (This will serve as the SC border around the top side.)
At end Ch.1 (same at each corner) and continue around the square.
Sl. St to connect the border
Tie off, weave in ends.
Super fun! Did sort of get monotonous after a while, but 15 squares later and I’m done!
I just love the Spring look of this quilt and I can’t wait to have it done and up in my shop! Thanks for reading!
If you have any ideas on projects that would be cool with fibre and fabric fusion that you would like to see, please comment!
