Here’s the 5th of 6 quilt patterns I plan to write and publish between August and February! (Read more about this personal project.)
This month’s pattern is called Quarter Moon. It was inspired by a pattern on a matchbook (yes really, a matchbook) that reminded me of the moon. When the moon is half full, as it looks here, it’s actually called either a “first quarter” or “third quarter” moon since we see it as half full at those points in its monthly cycle. Hence the name: quarter moon!
There’s only one block to learn here — a half square triangle unit combined with a drunkard’s path motif. Like last time, I made a test block but did not actually make a full quilt so again: while I did my best to make it accurate, the pattern has not been fully tested.
The blocks finish at 8″ square and the finished quilt is 48″ x 64″ which would be a great size for a crib or throw quilt. By adding blocks, you could easily size this up to fit a bed or down to make a small baby quilt. Download the pattern for free right here:
p.s. The pattern is also available — still free — in my Craftsy shop.
