Grande Scrappy Tiles is a super-sized version of my previous pattern Scrappy Tiles. The original pattern was layer cake and scrap friendly (containing baby, toddler, and lap sizes) and so the pieces tended to be on the smaller side.
I have been asked multiple times if the pattern can be enlarged to a twin or queen size quilt. The regular Scrappy Tiles pattern can be used to create larger sized quilts, but the number of fabric pieces starts to get a little ridiculous.
To create the same look but with fewer pieces, I created Grande Scrappy Tiles, using the same block pattern as the regular Scrappy Tiles but making 24" square blocks instead of 12" square blocks. The result is the same great improvisational-looking quilt top only using many fewer fabric pieces. The queen size quilt contains only 16 blocks.
Grande Scrappy Tiles contains cutting instructions for 1/4 yard cuts and fat quarters as well as scraps. This pattern is perfect for your fat quarter bundle with larger scale prints you don't want to chop up into small pieces.
I had some absolutely wonderful quilty women pattern test and review for me and you can see all of their variations on the pattern below. Five of the testers are holding giveaways for the digital version of the pattern so you have 5 chances to win!
