Encore Please!

Now the ever-popular BQ5 quilt by Maple Island Quilts has a baby sister.

Small off-center focus with the flat top pinwheel as the accent. You can use one center fabric like the pumpkins on the cover or many centers like the table runner on the cover. The blocks are smaller than the original BQ5: 9″ and 4 ½” which is why my friend Heide had the great idea for the title BQ5 Encore!

The same blocks can be made in a-4 1/2 or 9-inch size.

Instructions include 2 quilt sizes in the 9″ block size, 27″ x 36″ and 36″ x 45″, or a table runner in the 4 1/2″ block size, 12″ x 48″.

The original pattern includes instructions for 18″ and 13-1/2″ and 6 quilts from wall/crib to queen. What a great pattern to showcase large prints!

Maple Island patterns are up-tempo and slightly contemporary quilt patterns that are fun to stitch and achievable for most skill levels. They often use clever cutting but traditional stitching and quilting techniques.

These are bold looks and clean design lines that allow you to put your own look into the quilt through fabric selection, block rotations, or placement. Maple Island Quilts patterns usually feature multiple sizes of projects and sometimes extra block sizes giving you many options from each pattern.

The new baby sister size will be available next month so place your orders now.
