I started this little project just for me. All you do is sew 4" patches together. It's very easy but there is a pattern called the Ollaieberry Ice Cream Quilt from the Posie Gets Cozy blog. It's worth the $7 to buy the pattern. Alicia Paulson does a great job of giving you yardage and guidance for a crib, twin, full, queen and king size quilts. It's soo easy and a great project for summer.
Alicia suggests just sewing the patches together. Don't worry about matching colors, solids, etc. Just put them together and be free!! This would also be a great project for charm squares (so you don't have to cut).
