    Turning twenty.

    Hello all!

    Does anyone have a free version of the pattern "turning twenty" ? I think that is what the pattern is called! Sorry, still a newbie! I am a new quilter, I've only finished a twin size and a baby sized quilt before. I am looking for a nice and easy pattern that I can come home from a stressful day at work and just relax with. I want quilting to be my stress relief right now Thanks ahead of time!

    It isn't free. They do sell them for about 5 bucks by themselves or entire booklets for maybe $10. Sorry, no help here.

    Most LQS carry that pattern, rather inexpensive to buy

    This is a very easy quilt to chart out on graph paper. You only have 3 pieces to contend with. Try it before spending money.

    Why don't you make a Double Slice? It's from Missouri Quilt Co. It's free and it's very easy.

    It is basically a modified version of the first 3 pieces of a Log Cabin block.

    It is just a bunch of squares and rectangles - I just looked at the picture and then figured out the measurement. You use 20 fat quarters (thus the name Turning 20). So depending on the size of the quilt you want - either use 20 fat quarters or you could use 10 1/2 yards.

    This doesn't give you a pattern, but I do think you can figure it out. Using a fat quarter which is 18 x 22 (usually) I cut it down to 17 x 17 because I wanted a smaller quilt. Then I cut off off one side so it was 6 & 1/2 x 17, leaving the other piece to be 10 & 1/2 x 17, I cut off another strip of 6 & 1/2 inches by 10 & 1/2, so it leaves a block of 10 1/2 x 10 1/2. Then you play with them and put them together so each block it different. A friend and I made a Halloween quilt for a friend because it was her birthday. We also used a sashing between the blocks because it showed off the fabrics better. You do need to square off each block, because the long strip will be shorter than the other side. They go together fast, you can use all kinds of fabric and if you want to use them long strip in half you can do that too, and it would cause the strip to be the same length as the other side.

    It is an easy quilt because you aren't matching seams.
