Simply Stacked Squares - Weekend Warrior Mini Retreat

Colleen fell in love with the modern look and bold colours of this design when she saw it as a Moda bakeshop free pattern several years ago. And designer Erica Jackman of @Kitchentablequilting has graciously agreed to let us do it as a workshop! We’ll work from Erica’s original pattern which uses 10” squares and 2.5” strips, along with Colleen's additions and cutting instructions for yardage.

We will focus on a lap sized quilt for the course, but Erica’s pattern now
has sizing for baby, lap, twin and larger, so you can tailor it to your needs.

Fabric requirements:


If using Colleen’s recommended 12 fabrics x WOF
12 coordinating fabrics @ 0.3m. x WOF
0.5m white or coordinating solid (optional)
0.5m binding


12 coordinating FQs
0.5m white or coordinating solid (optional)
0.5m binding

12 @ 10” Squares
48 coordinating WOF strips (need at least two of each colour*)
*Note: if adding in optional white/coordinating solid, can reduce this to 40-42 strips
