QM Bitty Blocks are sweet little 3″ or 4″ quilt block patterns given monthly on Quilty Pleasures. We’re having so much fun with them! If you make Bitty Blocks each month, you’ll have enough to make a row quilt by the end of the year.
If you need to catch up, see all of the Bitty Blocks patterns and posts.
We wanted to show you the various row quilt sizes and options now. QM’s Creative Editor Paula Stoddard came up with several possibilities. Choose the one that suits you best and make quilt blocks in the appropriate numbers. Here’s a printer-friendly pdf of these layouts.
Shown above is the smallest version at 30″ x 37″. For the 3″ blocks such as the House and the Bow Tie, you’ll make 8 blocks for a row. For the 4″ blocks such as the Basket, you’ll make 6 blocks for a row. There are 6 rows of blocks.
And yes, we’re giving you a little hint of what’s to come: Flying Geese! Stay tuned for the instructions.
A larger throw-size quilt comes in at 54″ x 66″, above. For the 3″ blocks, make 16 per row. For the 4″ blocks, make 12 per row. There are 12 rows of blocks.
For a larger throw, make the version above at 66″ x 75″. There are 14 rows of blocks. For 3″ blocks, you’ll make 20 blocks per row. For 4″ blocks, you’ll make 15 blocks per row.
Perhaps you want a longer quilt. Paula created this 66″ x 85″ version to fit the bill. There are 16 rows of blocks. The numbers are the same as the quilt layout above it: 20 blocks per row for the 3″ blocks, and 15 blocks per row for the 4″ blocks.
If you’ve gotten seriously addicted to Bitty Blocks like some of us have, this super-sized 78″ x 85″ version might be for you. There are 16 rows of blocks. Make 24 blocks per row for any 3″ blocks. Make 18 blocks per row for any 4″ blocks.
