We’re entering into the final stretch of the school year, which means that graduations for many young people are fast approaching. Whether headed to a dorm next fall or into their own apartment, a twin-bed quilt is a fantastic gift to help a young person celebrate reaching a new milestone.
Don’t let the name of this week’s free quilt pattern, Tween Tumbler, fool you into thinking it’s a kiddie quilt—it can be personalized with any type of prints or solids in any color palette. And at 68¾˝ x 84½˝, this template-pieced honeycomb pattern is just the thing to create a modern, custom look for a twin or even full bed.
