Classic and Vintage Series: Grandmother’s Favorite

We’re back with another pattern in our Classic & Vintage series, the Grandmother’s Favorite Quilt!  In our Classic & Vintage series, we focus on traditional quilt blocks and add a modern twist! The Grandmother’s Favorite Block is created by piecing half square triangles using 4″ Triangles on a Roll Paper. You’ll be able to sew this up in a cinch but your quilt will look impressively elaborate.

Our complete Grandmother’s Favorite Quilt Pattern gives instructions for making a tablerunner, lap, twin and queen-sized quilts. The block finishes at 16.5″ x 16.5.”

We made ours in Catalina by Fig Tree & Co. for Moda Fabrics. Check out the full collection with all those bright florals.

If you’re ready to sew along with us, download your FREE Grandmother’s Favorite Block Pattern and your low-cost Grandmother’s Favorite Quilt Pattern, then watch Kimberly’s video tutorial for a step-by-step guide on making your block! Kimberly shows you how to make accurate half-square triangles from Triangles On A Roll paper, saving you time!

This classic quilt block was popular in the 1930s. We took our inspiration from this block published in The Kansas City Star in 1930.

We have some wonderful quilty friends who sewed their own versions of the Grandmother’s Favorite Block to show us how it’s done. Grandma would be proud! Click on each photo to see it in detail.

  1. I love these Classic & Vintage blocks. One of my projects during this stay-at-home period has been sewing one of each. This both gives me cute blocks with which to decorate my studio and helps me decide which I’d enjoy making as full-scale quilts. Thanks again for the free block patterns!
