There’s nothing more fun than sewing old-fashioned patterns. Last week, I learned how to make Jenny Doan’s easy Susannah quilt. It’s a simple block yet has its own charm. For this project, you only need 2 1/2 inch strips of precut fabrics or jelly rolls. Play with different colors and patterns for this quilt. You don’t need to worry if you are still a beginner, as this pattern is very effortless. You’ll surely enjoy making this design. Watch the video below by Missouri Star for full instructions. Happy sewing!

Step 1:

Take one strip, cut off the selvage ends, and on the fold to have two separate pieces.

Step 2:

For the first one, cut it into 4 1/2″ rectangles. Set them aside.

Step 3:

For the other, sew a background strip with a quarter of an inch seam allowance. Cut them into 2 1/2″ segments. Make sure to cut them before you iron them. Open them and iron them. You only need 4 of these segments for one block – set aside the others.

Step 4:

Sew 4 rectangles on each segment with a quarter of an inch seam allowance.

Step 5:

Snowball the outer corner of the small blocks. Get 1 piece of  2 1/2″ square, press it in half, place it in the corner, and stitch directly on the diagonal. Trim off the just above the sewn line and iron it. Repeat with the 3 more blocks.

Step 6:

Grab the 4 stacks and mix and match them. Turn all the corners to the center to make a diamond. Sew them into rows with a quarter of an inch seam allowance, then sew them together. You need a total of 42 blocks – 6 across and 7 down.

Step 7:

Put a sashing in between with the same size as your block. For the sashing in between rows, use the same size and put a corner square in the middle. Put in also on the top, bottom, and sides of the quilt. Lastly, add the 2 1/2″ border.
