3408: Bliss and Blossoms


Bliss and Blossoms is a phenomenal quilt, with a dynamic design made from simple patchwork. Sara Gallegos and Angela Huffman show how sashing can create floating stars, and play with shadowed diamond rectangles and non-mirrored half-rectangle units for a dramatic quilt.


Finding the right tool can make piecing a pleasure. Instead of using templates to constuct Bliss and Blossoms, Angela chose to use two commercially available rulers, the Diamond Rects and Split Rects rulers from Deb Tucker’s Studio 180 Design. We’ve written the pattern so that no specialty rulers are required. If you chose to try out the rulers, make sure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions.


Angela’s quilt, which features fabric from the Bliss collection by Riley Blake Designs, plays with her favorite shape—the diamond rectangle! The quilting is done in cooridinating mint-colored thread.

Bliss and Blossoms appears in the 3400 series pattern eBooklet, and also Love of Quilting November/December 2019 (available September 2019).
