Grammy’s Rose Garden FREE Quilt Pattern

Grammy's Rose Garden Free Quilt Pattern- Jacquelynne Steves_

The other day, we talked about how to accurately sew triangles to squares to make square in a square (aka diamond in a square) blocks.  Today, we are going to make a quilt using square in a square blocks, to get a little practice.

By the way- if you like this pattern, you will love my Free Newsletter! You will get a couple of super a-dorable free patterns when you sign up, plus all kinds of projects and creative ideas delivered to your inbox every week! Just sign up here:

Introducing Grammy’s Rose Garden!

The soft colors and florals in this reminded me of walking in my grandmother’s rose garden. This is a quick project! Change the colors for a baby quilt, Christmas quilt, use school colors for a graduation quilt. It’s so easy! Here we go!

Approximate finished size- 45 x 53” (If you’d like a larger quilt, it’s easy to just make extra blocks and/or add more borders.)

For a tutorial on making “square in a square” blocks, please click here.

WOF= width of fabric     When instructed to cut wof strips, cut the strips then trim off selvedges.

All seams 1/4”. Sew fabrics RIGHT sides together.

Fabric Requirements:

    • White Floral- 1 3/8 yards
    • White Solid- 1/4 yard
    • Pink Floral- 5/8 yard
    • Assorted pinks for blocks- scraps or fat quarters, OR you can use 20 charm squares
    • Assorted greens for blocks- scraps or fat quarters, OR you can use 20 charm squares
    • Backing fabric- 3 yards
    • Batting- 51 x 59”

 

Cutting Instructions:

White Floral

    • Cut (4) 6 3/8” wide wof strips. Cut these strips into (20) 6 3/8” squares for blocks.
    • Cut (5) 4” wide wof strips (borders)

 

White Solid

    • Cut (4) 1 1/2” wide wof strips (borders)

 

Pink Floral

    • Cut (5) 1 1/2” wide wof strips (borders)
    • Cut (5) 2 1/2” wide wof strips (binding)

 

Assorted Pinks (if not using charm squares)

    • Cut (20) 5” squares

 

Assorted Greens (if not using charm squares)

    • Cut (20) 5” squares

 

Making the blocks:

Cut the assorted pink and green squares in half diagonally to yield a total of 80 triangles.

Squares

Referring to tutorial, sew a pink triangle to either side of each floral square, being sure that triangles are accurately centered. Press seams toward triangles.

b

Sew a green triangle to remaining sides of floral squares. Press seams toward triangles. Blocks should measure 8 3/4” (8 1/4” finished size.)

a

Sew blocks into 5 rows of 4 blocks each.  The pink triangles should be facing the same way for each block.

c

Sew the rows together to make quilt top.

Adding the borders:

Borders are calculated mathematically. Please measure across the center of your quilt before cutting borders and adjust border length accordingly.

Press seams toward borders.

Border #1- White

    • Cut 2 of the wof strips to 41 3/4” and sew to sides of quilt.
    • Cut remaining 2 wof strips to 35 1/2” and sew to top and bottom of quilt.

 

Border #2- Pink Floral

    • Sew 3 of the 1 1/2” wide wof strips together into one long strip. From this long strip, cut 2 strips which are 43 3/4” and sew to sides of quilt.
    • Cut remaining (2) 1 1/2” wide strips to 37 1/2” long and sew to top and bottom of quilt.

 

Border #3- White Floral

    • Sew the (5) wof strips together into one long strip.
    • From this strip, cut 2 strips which are 45 3/4” long and sew to sides of quilt.
    • From remaining long pieced strip, cut strips which are 44 1/2” long and sew to top and bottom of quilt.

 

Quilt as desired. Bind with Pink Floral fabric.

What are some of your ideas for this quilt- a quick baby quilt, guy’s “man-cave” quilt…. What kinds of fabrics would you use? Tell me in the comments! (Here’s an idea to get you started- I swapped out my pretty pinks and greens for dark colors for a great “man cave” quilt- look how different this same exact quilt pattern looks:)

    My grand-daughter gave me a floral print “housecoat” that had been her maternal grandmother’s, and asked if I could make a quilt with it. I think this pattern is just made for it. The print has roses. I have been stalling, trying to decide what to make for her that would be special to remember both of us. Thank you so much!

    Thanks for your Rose Garden Pattern. When I see all the beautiful rose material, I want to buy it but I don’t know what to do with it, so I walk out never purchasing any. But this pattern gave me an idea to make a baby girl quilt with all those beautiful roses. Thanks again.

      Hi Kathy! I’m glad you like the pattern! Do you mean that you want to share this blog post which contains the tutorial, or you want to share the pattern itself? Of course, you may share this blog post with everyone you know! I just ask that you don’t share the file itself, everyone should stop by my blog and grab their own copy. Does that make sense?
