Let me clarify something, I am a fairly new quilter. I found a picture of a quilt I want to make but it doesn't have a pattern. It's just a simple scrappy quilt, you alternate a solid white square with a variety of red/pink prints. My question is - how do I put the squares together? They are 5" squares (I just decided that was the size I wanted). Do I make rows or turn it into a 9 patch? I am not an experienced sewer but I love to quilt, so far I have only attempted rag quilts and smaller projects like table runners. One of my runners ended up a bit crooked when done and that was with a pattern. I am being extra careful not to stretch the fabric when ironing and my seams are fairly accurate. I piece on a old Singer 185 or my Singer 99K which both do excellent straight stitching so that's not an issue. The quilt will be big, queen sized for my bed. Any advice from all you great quilters would be appreciated. I am learning so much from the posts on this board.
