Charity Quilt - Easy 9 Patch


Easy 9 Patch Linus Quilt

Here is a pattern Ive created for those who wish to make a Linus quilt for charity. Its an easy quilt with just one pieced block, made five times. Well make the pieced block first, then put the whole thing together. This quilt will measure 27 1/4" x 27 1/4" square when completed. An ideal quilt for a child. Happy stitching!!




Here's a black and white map of one block for easy identification of templates and their placement.




Fabric Requirements:


Pink Fabric:1/4 yard (25cm)
Purple Fabric:1/4 yard (25cm)
Blue Fabric:1/2 yard (50cm)
Lime Fabric:3/8 yard (40cm)
Binding:1/4 yard (25cm)



Cutting Instructions



Pink Fabric:
  • cut four 2 1/8 x 2 1/8 squares (A)
  • cut twenty 2 x 2 squares (H)




  • Lime Fabric:
  • cut four 2 1/8 by 24 rectangles (C)
  • cut one 6 1/8 x 6 1/8 square (E)



  • Purple Fabric:
  • Cut twenty 2 7/8 squares and cut diagonally to reap 40 triangles. (G)



  • Blue Fabric:
  • Cut four 6 1/8 x 6 1/8 squares (F)
  • cut four 8 squares (D)




  • Sewing Instructions:

    Step 1: Cut out all of the pieces required according to the template map above and lay them out on your work surface.

    Step 2: To make one block take two G templates and sew them to one top and one side of an H template. (see diagram below)


    Step 3: Make three more GHG units as above.
    Step 4: Take an F template and sew a GHG unit to each side. (see diagram below) Note: Make four blocks in this manner. For the centre block replace the F template with the E template.


    Step 5:Now to put the rows together. Sew two blocks to a D template for top row. Sew two D templates to the Centre block to make the centre row. Sew two blocks to a D template for bottom row. (see diagram below)


    Step 6:Sew the rows into a quilt. Sew the top row to the middle row, press the seam to the centre row. Then sew the bottom row to the centre row, press the seam to the centre row.

    Step 7:Now to sew the borders and corner squares. Take two C templates and sew an A template to each end. Repeat with a second C template.


    Step 8:Sew the two C templates (that dont have the squares on them) to the top and bottom of the pieced blocks. Then finally, join the other two C templates (with the squares) onto right and left sides.
    Wonderful. You have completed your quilt top.


    Step 9:All thats left now is to sandwich the quilt, machine or hand quilt it and finally bind the quilt. What a wonderful gift youve made for someone that is in need of your generous compassion.
