Easily Make This Quilt Larger or Smaller by Adjusting the Number of Blocks!

There’s something about spaced blocks in a border that draw us to a quilt. They work especially well in this easy-to-make quilt. The body of the quilt is simple nine patches with borders. The white background between the blocks and borders brings the quilt to life.

The tutorial by Roslyn Mirrington of Bloom uses one jelly roll of prints and one white jelly roll. Choose a jelly roll of fabrics you love and before long you’ll have a wonderful pieced top ready for quilting.

Sweet Menagerie Quilt

We especially like the version shown below created by Susan Linder. Omit some of the blocks to size it for a baby quilt.

Both of these quilts are lovely with their soft colors. We enjoy it made up in more vivid colors as well.

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.
