How to make Counted Quilts

These are Perfect Patterns for

Beginning Quilters!

These quilts are a quick and easy way to make an adorable character without using applique. Only Straight Seams! First, cut the fabric into a given number of strips of varying sizes. Second, cut those strips into the given number of pieces. Third, sew the entire quilt top together, using straight 1/4" seams, following a large labeled picture map.

Counted Quilts making Quilts that Count!

I am a stay at home mom. I started designing these quilts for my mother, so she could make new baby quilts for each of her grandchildren. And now I design them for you! I love to get ideas from friends and family and see what I can make for them.

My daughter asked me one day when we were making our next “Quilt that Counts.”  I told her my shop was called Counted Quilts, but I think she had it right. I love being part of making a gift that really counts. 



Quilting has been a great way for her to share her sewing talent with her family and friends. She has made wedding quilts for her married children, nieces and nephews, and a baby quilt for her grandchildren. She is a great support and big help getting Counted Quilts out into the world. Helping with all these quilts has allowed her to perfect her binding method. Check out her Carrie Ruler on YouTube Carrie Ruler
