Get Creative and Use the Blocks in Other Projects as Well!
Row-by-row quilts are popular for good reason. Each row is made of repetitions of a quilt block, with (usually) no two rows the same. When the rows are combined into a larger quilt they often tell a story.
It’s fun to see different blocks creatively combined like this. Plus, making a quilt is more interesting when you can mix up the quilt blocks.
One of the things that we especially like about row-by-row quilts is that you can easily use the blocks for other projects. So, the pattern for a row-by-row quilt is a real value because it can be used in many ways.
We love the story and the blocks in this “Summer Beach Quilt”. We can easily imagine the blocks used for many other projects. The sailboat is especially charming.
The pattern, from Cristina Tepsick at Pretty Little Quilts, is a series of free tutorials.
When made as instructed, the finished quilt is 60″ x 70″.
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!
