But what pattern could I use? I knew that I wanted to use a new design so I did some scribbling on graph paper and came up with what I thought was a brand new (never seen before) quilt pattern design!

If you are looking for a super quick quilt make OR an interesting yet simple backing, have I got the project for you. This pattern calls for any fabric which has a wider Width of Fabric (WOF) - at least 53" and means you can whip up a decent size throw (78" x 78") in no time! For this project, I used 100% linen which you can purchase here- I also have kits if you would like to make one yourself! I used this as the "backing" for my 100% linen Lottie quilt.  To make this, you need: 1 yard Fabric...
