We’re back with another pattern in our Classic & Vintage series, the Nine Patch Star Quilt Block! In our Classic & Vintage series, we focus on traditional quilt blocks and add a modern twist! The nine patch, one of quilting’s oldest blocks, lends itself to so many variations due to its simplicity. Here, we’ve spruced it up with half square triangles to give it a new look.
The Nine Patch Star quilt block is available to use as a free download. You can use it in projects large and small, from quilts to table runners. Kimberly made her Nine Patch Star quilt using Sunnyside Up by Corey Yoder for Moda Fabrics. The fun florals and sun-kissed colors really brighten up a room.
Quilty staffer, Denise, made the crib size of the quilt using A Day in Paris (fabric will be out in April 2019) for a modern look. Gina Tell of Thread Graffiti did the longarm quilting, and it turned out beautifully.
We hope you enjoy quilting your own Nine Patch Star Classic and Vintage quilt and please share your work using the #NinePatchStarQuilt hashtag. Happy Quilting!
Happy Friday Quilters! We are back with another pattern in our Classic & Vintage series, the Maple Leaf Quilt Block! It’s just sew perfect for Autumn! In our Classic & Vintage series, we focus on traditional quilt blocks and add a modern twist!
The Maple Leaf quilt block (a free download) is a gorgeous vintage block from the Kansas City Star columns that is simple, yet altogether makes a pretty-as-a-picture quilt! Kimberly made her Maple Leaf quilt using Farmhouse II by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda Fabrics. The warm pumpkin tones lend just the right autumnal attitude!
It’s Friday, and we’re going to send you off on a Wild Goose Chase… but you’ll wind up with a beautiful quilt! The next Classic & Vintage block in our YouTube series is the Wild Goose Chase quilt block. This vintage block is one of our absolute favorites, but those flying geese units can be tricky to line up for even blocks. Our main tip here is to use the flying geese paper by Triangles on a Roll — it’s so easy to use, and all the units wind up sewn in perfect rows that you don’t need to worry about! PLUS, we have all Triangles on a Roll notions on sale 15% this week only with promo code Triangle15, so there is no better time to snatch one up to try for yourself!
Happy Friday, Quilters! We are ending this wonderful week with another episode of our Classic & Vintage block series on YouTube, the Snail Trail quilt block. This block has various names, including Monkey Wrench, Ocean Waves, Whirligig, and even Indiana Puzzle, but Snail Trail is the most prevalent name we found. In any case, the swirling effect of this block can be a doozy.
There are many different ways to make this block, especially with paper piecing and templates, but we like simplifying things wherever possible while still keeping accuracy and perfect points. We tested several different methods and sizes to make this block and wound up with a technique that we are really happy with! Curious to see how we do it?
Happy Wednesday! Today, we’re debuting a new addition to our Classic & Vintage Quilt Series: Jacob’s Ladder.

Composed of blocks with 9 squares, the pattern finishes to resemble a series of ladders throughout the quilt top.

Hello everyone! It’s time for our first Classic & Vintage Quilt of 2015. If you’re unfamiliar with our Classic & Vintage series, we take classic, traditional blocks and make it fresh for today.
When we think of traditional blocks, one of our all time favorites is the double wedding ring block. For our series (and to avoid that darned curved piecing!) we decided to tackle the Single Wedding Ring quilt block instead.. Kimberly thought that the Whitewashed Cottage collection by 3 Sisters for Moda Fabrics would be the perfect pairing with its soft, muted colors.
Welcome back to the Jolly Jabber everyone! We’re debuting our newest addition to the Classic & Vintage Quilt series. The purpose of our Classic & Vintage series is to take classic, traditional blocks and make it fresh for today.
Today, we are reviving the traditional Bear Paw Block, which is definitely a favorite of Fat Quarter Shop. Kimberly chose to use the Crazy For Red collection by Minick & Simpson for Moda Fabrics, since red and white quilts are always a classic.
Our complete Bear Paw quilt pattern is available in PDF form for purchase at our shop. This pattern includes the table runner, crib, twin, and king sizes. We also created a Bear Paw Quilt Kit to get you started.
