Bella Maiden Quilt Pattern

Oct 9, 2015

Sometimes making a little quilt block is just not enough.  Sometimes it need to be supersized!  This quilt, Bella Maiden, is just that.  It's a large version of the Old Maid's Puzzle block constructed using the classic basic - the half square triangle.  I absolutely love seeing traditional blocks given center stage.  And by adding the HSTs into the mix, the quilt becomes a lot more interesting when you get to blend and mix the prints and solids into the overall shapes of the quilt.
Bella Maiden's finished size is 64" x 64" with an individual block size of 32" x 32".  They're big!

Below you can see the fabric requirements to make:
I showed you earlier this week that I played around with Gatekeeper and Fig Tree's new Farmhouse line.  I decided to do the same with Bella Maiden.  It really softens it's edge.  And I rather like it - I would love to see this quilt made up in this line.  I am really smitten with Farmhouse.  It looks great with these modern patterns!
And this is another version in one of Pam Kitty's lines using only 2 colors.  It changes the look a little when you concentrate on two main colors.  This one would be so sweet for a girl.
