TRINKET SEW ALONG: Let’s talk about LAYOUT!
We think the cover quilt is beautiful, and I know a lot of you will probably want to make your quilt in a similar way. That’s great, go for it! The Trinket pattern is also an open ended resource to use the blocks in different ways. We are going to share a couple of alternate layouts as inspiration for your own creativity and distinct choices TOMORROW MORNING, so check back in the am! Maybe you will come up with a fun, new layout? We are excited to see your creation!
For the cover quilt, ninety-seven Trinket blocks are combined with ninety-eight fabric squares to create a checkerboard design in a throw size, but the blocks are very flexible! Add, subtract, and rearrange blocks to create a variety of designs and layouts. The pattern includes an Alternative Sizes chart with suggested size options/blocks needed/background fabric requirements. It does not include fabric requirements for the pieced blocks. Check out our post on FABRIC CHOICES and AMOUNTS for information that topic!
The ‘30 - 40 fat quarters for the pieced blocks’ as listed on the pattern back is based on the cover quilt layout and size. The finished size is 52 x 60 and includes 97 pieced blocks (2 of each of the 40 blocks + 17 additional blocks of the maker’s choosing). If you choose a different size/layout/block style, your fabric needs will change. The key is having a mix of color that you love that you can add to if needed. This creates a more freestyle piecing/design, but it is staying true to the spirit of this pattern.
