'Lost on the Block'

45" x 57"

Hi, my name is Jackie White and you can find me here making 3D art quilts and other fun quilty things.


I am thrilled to be back again showing you how to make a fun and practical lap quilt.

Let's get started:

Supplies - from the Lost and Found collection

1/2 yard of each of Gray Round, Pink Round, Pink Labels, Black Dot, Pink Dot and Basic Shades Slate.

1 yard of each Black Main and Pink Main

2 yards for backing

2 yards batting



Cut 12 - 4 1/2 " squares of each of the following colours:  Gray Round, Pink Round, Pink Dot and Black Dot.

Borders:  Cut 3 1/2" strips out of the Black Main.  Cut 2" strips out of Pink Labels.

Binding:  Cut 2 1/2" strips out of Basic Shades Slate. 

From the Pink Main strips, cut 48 - 4 1/2" x 2 1/2" , and attach to one side of each of the coloured " squares.   Again from the Pink Main strip, cut 48  6 1/2" x 2 1/2" and attach to an adjacent side of the square as shown.  Do this for all squares.


You are going to assemble 2 different blocks, each 12 1/2"  and make 6 of each.   Here is the first block:


Here is the second block:

Arrange by taking each set of 6 blocks and from one pile, put one block with the black polka dots at the top, and from the other pile put a block with the black polka dots at the bottom.  Alternate blocks with 3 across and 4 down. 

To do borders, attach the 2" Pink Labels to top and bottom and then sides.  Then attach the 3 1/2" strips of Black Main to sides and top and bottom.

 Quilt, and bind with the Basic Shades Slate.
