LOL (Lots of Little) Squares

The LOL quilt series from RJ Designs are unique variations of the traditional Irish Chain design.
The sixteen-page pattern booklet gives detailed instruction needed to construct bed-sized quilts using LOL (lots Of Little) one-inch finished squares.

LOL Traditional Style

RJ Designs has simplified the process to create these awe-inspiring quilts using an innovative method of strip-piecing. The strips can be cut quickly and accurately with the Creative Grids® Stripology XL ruler (Item #CGRGE1XL).

LOL Argyle Style
LOL Modern Style

You, and possibly a group of friends, can decide if you want to trade strips for a scrappier look – a multitude of different fabric strips are needed for constructing this stunning quilt. Decide whether you want to stay within a theme such as solid fabrics, reproduction prints, batiks, or totally scrappy- where anything goes (my favorite).

The booklet includes instructions for two twins, a queen and a king size version. You are about to embark on one of your most exciting and unique quilt piecing experiences! The patterns are due to arrive this week so order them now.

These kits are a great way to keep those mask makers engaged. This is my plan:

This year I made GALLONS of Chex mix, filled quart jars, and put them in gift bags. My children and grandchildren had a ball leaving these gifts on the doorsteps of friends and on the desks of their favorite teachers. Hopefully, we will be able to celebrate the holidays this year up close and personal, but we want to continue the tradition. I drew squares the size of each woolfelt piece onto freezer paper. Then, I traced the templates for that color within the square. Since my family and friends are making multitudes of these, we can run as many copies of the template sheets as we have kits – and only have to trace them once. Now, the instructions say to trace the templates right onto the wool felt, but ironing the freezer paper onto the woolfelt with a warm iron was much faster. Why not provide a template sheet to your customers as that “value-added” bonus with the purchase of each kit?

This Gypsy Quilter Appliqué Freezer Paper is over-sized and worked well!
