VII Class 01-17: BQ3 Quilts

This beginner’s quilt project is called the BQ3 Quilt, which is pattern #3 in the Big Quilt series of instructions from Debbie Bowles of Maple Island Quilts. You can access some on-line instructions in the “Sewing With Nancy” series with Nancy Zieman.

A couple of samples are shown on this page: to the right are photos of a small wall hanging made by my friend Lorraine, in which she used a feature fabric with the “Maxine” character and several Christmas prints. She resized the blocks to finish to 12″.

The black and yellow quilt used a large scale print for the largest square in the block, a yellow fabric for the smaller square, and then coordinating light and dark fabrics to make up the remainder of the block.
