It’s time for another Classic & Vintage Series pattern release, this time with the Gretchen Quilt, inspired by the Gretchen block from the Kansas City Star in 1932! This series takes traditional quilt blocks and adds a modern twist. Keep reading for all the details on this new vintage-inspired quilt and the FREE Quilt Block Pattern.
The Gretchen Quilt Pattern
The quilt pattern gives instructions for making Crib, Lap, Twin, and Queen-sized quilts. To make your quilt just like ours, we have the Gretchen Quilt Kit, which includes everything we used, and you can also grab the backing set!
The Gretchen Quilt Block
The FREE Gretchen Block Pattern makes a 12.5″ unfinished square block and is designed to be much easier thanks to using half square triangles rather than the templates from the 1930s block. If you want to sew with some help, we have a FREE video tutorial where Kimberly guides you through the step-by-step for making this Classic & Vintage quilt block.
