Briar Rose - A Finish and a Free Jelly Roll Pattern

As you know I love the video tutorials by the Missouri Star Quilt Company.  They always have great ideas for quilts and find all sorts of nifty notions that they demo on you tube.  Earlier in the year I fell in love with their "4 patch quilt + Xs and Os = Awesome Quilt" Tutorial which demonstrates a great way to make the Arkansas Crossroads quilt with a jelly roll.  I wanted to make one but wasn't sure how big a quilt I would get out of one jelly roll and I didn't want to just start cutting and making it up as I went along - I'm too much of a Capricorn for that kind of fly by the seat of your pants malarkey!  So, I cracked out the calculator, devised a quilt plan and wrote a pattern for it, and today I'd like to share it with you.

You can download the pattern, which is fully supported by CAD diagrams, by clicking here, or by clicking on the photo on the right hand side bar of my blog.  I loved making this quilt. It goes together quickly and easily and it's one where you can just sit back and let the pretty fabric do all the work.  I hope you like it.
 


Mum quilted it using the gorgeous new pattern, Henna Flower, by Lorien Quilting.







Thank you so much to the Missouri Star Quilt Company for generously endorsing my pattern for their 4 patch quilt + Xs and Os = Awesome Quilt tutorial.  Here is the original video from Jenny.....

  4. Thanks for doing this. A printed pattern makes so much more sense to me, and I've been hearing about this quilt but wasn't ready to tackle it.
