A Great Design for Showing Off Larger Scale Prints!

Select showy prints in primarily two colors for your own version of this scrappy-look quilt. The pinks and oranges in the quilt shown here are great together. This will be wonderful in your favorite colors too.

The large blocks are easy to stitch together. Combine as many as you need to make your quilt the size you want it to be. Kelly of My Quilt Infatuation used 16 of the 15″ “Purse Strings” blocks to make her “Grapefruit Fizz” quilt (several views of the quilt, back and label are shown here).

Four x four blocks make a nice lap sized quilt. Three blocks square are perfect for a baby quilt. Go larger by adding more blocks for bed quilts.

Add a border, or not, and finish the quilt off. Quick, easy and stunning once completed!

Instructions are provided for 15″, 12″ and 9″ blocks.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
