Block Library – #3 Prairie Queen

Block Library - Free Quilt Block Tutorials

It’s time for our next Block Library tutorial.

Just a reminder, these blocks are free for a minimum of one month. Download the tutorials and save them to your computer. You can make all of the blocks, or just some of them. The choice is yours. This is not meant as a quilt-along. While I’d love to say I’ll publish a new block each week, being self-employed, paying client work always takes priority over my sewing time and the free tutorials.

#3 Prairie Queen

The third block is Prairie Queen. Below are my two versions. I’m really not happy with the contrast in my batik version. It does look better than it photographed, but I’ll probably redo this block. I made the batik version in the 6″ size and the scrappy version is 12″.

Below are some layout options. I really like the no sashing and on point layouts. Which one is your favourite?

    thank you for the free pattern. these are wonderful blocks. my favorite is the non sashing/non point quilt. I love the dramatic look of the batick one, the other reminds me of summer. A lot like a quilt my grandmother made my mom years ago. Now I have it.
