Staircase Lap Quilt

Tuesday, February 26, 2019

Happy Tuesday! I have a little lap quilt to share with you today!

I really love how this quilt turned out, but it took me a while to finally get photos of it! It originally appeared in the Winter 2018 issue of Quilts and More magazine as a part of the Scrap Lab section. For the design, I wanted to create a block that was a simple tessellation. I came up with these simple staircase shapes. This quilt is 48.5"x54.5".

I think what makes this quilt really striking is the color palette, it's really fresh! The fabrics used in this quilt are Painter's Palette solids by Paintbrush Studio. Here are the colors in this quilt: Claret, Taupe, Lime Mist, Moss, Rosebud, Peach, Teal, Snow, Coral, and Emerald.

I kept the quilting on this super simple, just some straight line quilting 1/4" on either side of all the horizontal seams.

For the backing I used a print from my Nordika collection that just so happened to be a perfect match! For the binding, I used scraps from all the solids used to put together the top.

Happy Quilting!


  1. Love the colors & design of this one!

  2. Great design! I bet it would look just as lovely in a scrappy version.

  3. Beautiful quilt. I love the colors! Enjoy your day! :-) :-)

  4. I love this little quilt, and the simplicity of it! I am new at quilting, and the way this was quilted is definitely effective, and something anyone could try to “get their feet wet” at quilting their own projects. I have so enjoyed your blog! Thank you for your generous spirit!

  5. Love it! Would absolutely buy a pattern for this one
