patchwork frames quilts

I just wanted to share some absolutely beautiful quilts that were made using my patchwork frames quilt pattern.  I have written a few posts highlighting various versions of this block throughout the summer including a mini quilt, a baby-sized quilt, and a lap/throw size quilt.  I have consolidated all of the posts/patterns/tutorials into one page so if you are interested in making your own patchwork frames quilt, you can find everything here.

This lovely quilt was made by Tessa from The Sewing Chick!  I love the adorable fussy cuts she used from one of my favorite fabric lines - The Simple Life  - especially paired with the light green background.  Tessa shares her thoughts on the pattern and more photos on her blog (click here.)

Tessa is also currently working on a new quilt using the patchwork frames pattern using all solids.  I am just fascinated by how different the pattern looks with these fabric choices.  I really like it - what do you think?

Laura from little and lots made her version using the randomly-placed blocks option.  I love the color palette she chose and if you read her post (click here), you can read why her 2 year old loves this quilt!

Martha from Weekend Doings made her quilt with the adorable Paris Flea Market fabrics for the centers - so cute! I also love the color palette and mix of border fabrics that Martha used.  Click here to see Martha's post and to read about her adventures FMQing this quilt.

I want to say thank you again to Tessa, Laura, and Martha for making these beautiful quilts and sharing their feedback on the pattern!  If you want to make your own patchwork frames quilt, click here for the free pattern and be sure to let me know if you make one!

  1. They are all beautiful but I absolutely love the solids one. It really changes how the pattern looks but totally works.

  2. Yep, I love the solids too, especially with the different colour backgrounds - would make a fab table runner.

  12. Thanks for the shout-out, Beth! I want to get back to this pattern and make a grown-up version. Tessa's solids variation is so amazing. It was a quick-piecing top and the work was a pleasure.
