Portland Square Quilt Pattern

portland-square-quilt-pattern-coverI am so happy to release this pattern today! I’ve been working on these quilts and patterns on and off for a *really* long time, so it has been so good to finally publish them and introduce them!

This is the Portland Square Quilt Pattern, a digital PDF pattern available in two sizes:  lap quilt (54” x 54”) and throw quilt (78” x 84”).

Charm pack and jelly roll friendly, as well as instructions for using yardage and scraps.portland-square-quilt-pattern-2

It is easily customizable, you could decrease or increase the number of blocks to make any size–this is my queen size quilt version, made out of Flea Market Fancy (FMF) fabrics.

I started working on it years ago, and finally finished it this summer (quilted by Nicole Christofferson @kwilter100). For any fellow fabric obsessors, when FMF was hard to find, I once dreamed of binding a quilt in these gray seeds. Feels so silly now, but I did it anyway, once the reprint came out a few years ago!


Pre-cut friendly, this quilt can be made with a jelly roll, charm packs, or yardage/scraps.

It looks great with solids, prints, or a combination of the two.

This 14 page pattern has clear instructions, full color illustrations, and coloring pages to help plan your quilt.

It is available on my website, my craftsy store, and EU customers: please see my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SwimBikeQuilt?ref=hdr_shop_men portland-square-quilt-pattern-bed

    I’m going to pretend that this Portland is here in Maine! In any case, it’s a terrific quilt. As a beginner, could I make this into a 16″ pillow without burning out my brain?
