Patience block quilt

This design can be made with as few as two prints for a really understated, yet striking effect, but we’ve gone all out with five per block in a sweet floral colour scheme that’s perfect for springtime. We used the Primrose Garden collection from Riley Blake Designs and added a contrasting striped border to make the prints really stand out.

Essentials
  1. 16 prints from the Primrose Garden Collection by Riley Blake Designs, fat quarter of each
  2. Pale pink cotton sashing, 50cm
  3. White cotton backing, 150cm
  4. 20oz wadding, 150cm
Dimensions List
  1. Block: 30cm square
  2. Quilt: 104cm x 108cm
  3. Note: Use a 5mm seam allowance unless otherwise stated.

Stitch the block

    1 Choose two prints and cut 11cm squares from each. Cut two 6cm x 16cm pieces from two more designs. From a fifth fabric, cut four 6cm x 11cm rectangles.

    2 Join a 6cm x 11cm rectangle to one side of a square, right sides together with a 5mm seam allowance. Open out and press flat so the rectangle sits at the bottom of the square.

    3 Attach a 6cm x 16cm rectangle to the left side of the block in the same way. Open out and press flat.

    4 Make up three more mini blocks and join these into a square to create each entire block, using the photos as a guide for fabric placement.

Make the quilt

    1 Use three different pattern combinations and make four blocks of each. Put a striped fabric aside, to use as a border for the quilt. Cut several 4cm wide sashing strips of pink cotton and use these to join the blocks together, firstly in rows of three, then joining them into a rectangle. Add a pink overlapped border all round the quilt top.

    2 Cut the striped print into 4cm wide strips across the pattern. Use these to make a second overlapped border around the quilt top. Press the entire panel. Lay down backing fabric, wadding and the quilt top on a flat surface and pin the three layers together at regular intervals. Machine quilt them together in the ditch along the sashing lines. Quilt each block pattern if desired.

    3 Fold the outer border back along the seam and trim the wadding to this line. Cut the backing fabric 2cm wider and bring up and over the wadding edge, mitring the corners and pinning in place. Turn in 5mm of the striped border before folding over the edge of the quilt and pinning to the back. Topstitch in the ditch, making sure the hem at the back is secured.
