Batty Squares for Linus

Batty Squares For Linus

Goal: To make as many quilts as we can for Linus and other chatities to meet or beat last years goal of 21.  To teach a new pattern of skill to a Batty Binder member and offer support to members.

Quilts should be about 40 to 45 X 50 to 60.  May also do twin size quilts for teens.  Using 8 or 9 in squares your quilt should be 5 x 6 squares or 5 x 7 squares.

May add  up to a 2.5 in border to quilt as long as within the 45 x 60 in size.

Patterns to be used must be squares or have been squares  Possibility of quilts to choose from are:

Plain 8 or 9 in squares arranged in different configurations to make a different pattern.
   Round the World
   Diagonal Rows
   Vertical or Horizontal Rows
   Snail Trail

Tossed 9 Patch
