Scrappy X's and O's Quilt Pattern Janet Wickell My versions of this easy X's and O's quilt pattern are scrappy, but yours can be much more controlled.

Free Quilt Patterns ~ Stitchin' Post. Grammy Quilts » Baby Quilt Patterns. Grammy | May 25, 2009 Every baby deserves their own quilt, at least one new quilt. With the arrival of my newest grandbaby, and short on time, I was tempted to put together a rag quilt. However, I just found this free quilt pattern this uses scraps of flannel that is quick, easy and could be modified to be ‘ragged’ if I wanted. I love the bright and bold colors used in their sample quilt shown in the image to the left, which I think is perfect for babies. However, what would also be lovely is to use scraps of fabric from your own child’s baby clothing and incoporate that into this quilt as well.

Borders. After many ( MANY...I mean MANY) requests...here are some border instructions for you!

Borders

Note that you still need to decide how big you want your borders, and how you would like to plan out your corners! Very seldom will your nice little pieced border units come out to the exact size of your pieced quilt top...and this is where the fun begins! No wonder quilters tend towards chocolate...we are always FUDGING! When the sizes are a little off, you have a couple of options...to take up some of your border length (or add to it) with slightly larger or smaller seams in the borders...OR to slightly increase or decrease the size of your quilt top...OR you can add strips to the sides, top and bottom of the quilt top to make it match the border strips...OR make more border units to make it match the quilt top, See?

Rose of Sharon Quilt Pattern History With Two Free Patterns.

I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters. A Rose or a Tulip? It appears that the Rose of Sharon in the Bible might actually refer to a wild tulip that even today grows on the plains of Sharon in Palestine. When the Bible was translated into English the word "rose" was used. Of course our foremothers would have imagined a rose, probably a wild rose. A Quilt Representing Love and Marriage Rose of Sharon quilts were especially popular in the mid 19th century and made a comeback during the 1920s and 30s.

Although they were made for many reasons the most traditional purpose was for newlyweds. Whatever the purpose these lovely appliqued quilts were usually considered a best quilt to be used only for special occasions or on a bed that would get little wear.
