Clover quilt pattern, 10 inch square or layer cake friendly

When I submitted the first draft of my Backyard Blooms fabric, there was a little four leaf clover print in it, and I had this “clover” quilt planned out in my head to match.  

The clover print was nixed, but this quilt was still begging to be made!

The throw size (the cover quilt) takes just one layer cake (yay!!!!!) plus a background fabric, or fat eighths. 

This would be a fabulous quilt for large scraps, or those large pieces of fabric that aren’t quite scraps, but aren’t quite fat quarters (basically my whole stash at the moment!).

Ideally the fabrics should be non-directional (unlike the chicken fabric in my quilt), but I’ve never cared if the fabrics were turned here and there, so I went for it.  Broken record here…this is another quilt that Diagonal Seam Tape will save you a thousand hours (give or take a little) marking diagonal lines.  ;) 

I’m making this quilt for Jane’s twin size bed in pinks/blues/lavenders….it’s going to be so adorable on her bed!   Also I haven’t made her a quilt yet since I was pregnant with her…whoops.

Kaitlyn quilted this in an all over floral design.  I wanted to bring out the roundness of the blocks a little more with the quilting.

The Clover pattern can be found here as a PDF pattern, and here as a Paper pattern .

Backyard Blooms will be available in July…I’ll post when it’s out in shops!

    Not surprised that I love it. Can’t wait to see Jane’s, the perfect little girl colors. My granddaughters favorite colors too!

    Love how the pretty heart blocks come together into a 4-leaf clover. Looking forward to your new fabric line :)!

    This is a beautiful quilt. Is it regularly pieced or paper pieced? Thank you.

      It’s regular pieced, I never do paper piecing LOL!

    I just bought this pattern – such a happy quilt. Wish I could get that layer cake right now! I jut love this quilt.

    Such a nice pattern and I love the new fabric too. Patterns like this are so good for appliqué quilters who cut out little/big pieces of fat quarters and then need a way to use the mess they have made!

      Love that! Thanks Sue!

    What a lovely pattern and I truly like the use of primary colors with turquoise added. Sew Pretty!

    Love this pattern, Allison! It really highlights the colors in your new fabrics. Also I have used the tape, and it is a time saver. And Jane… adorable as usual!

    Hi Allison,
    Can I use fat quarters for the Jelly Weave or the strips are longer?
    Thank you, Myrto

    What size is the finished block in the clover quilt pattern?

  15. Penny Mann July 15, 2020 at 3:08 pm #

    I could not find a printable paper pattern for the clover quilt.
    Is it an applique quilt?
