Grande Scrappy Tiles Pattern Launch

I am excited to announce that my newest pattern, Grande Scrappy Tiles, is now available! You can find the pattern in my PayHip store, on Etsy, and on Craftsy.  The pattern will be on sale for $6 for two weeks (until July 4th) and there are plenty of chances below to win a free copy from my pattern testers' blogs.



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!
Please hop over to their blogs and enter :)  And now onto the parade...


Shauna @ Shauna's World used all sorts of wonderful pinks and purples to make her quilt.

Sandra @ Musings of a Menopausal Melon used some great pink floral prints along some coordinating colors and prints.

Lisa @ Sunlight in Winter Quilts used red, blue, yellow, and black fabrics to make a fun primary color quilt.

Shelley @ The Carpenter's Daughter Who Quilts made her version with some cute cowboy prints and plaid fabrics.


I would also like to give thanks to my reviewers Paige @ IG - Ptalexandersc, Michelle @ From Bolt to Beauty, and Pamela @ Ti Amo Quilts. 

Once again, the pattern is now available in my PayHip shop, on Etsy, and on Craftsy for only $6 until July 4th.  Thanks!

  2. Great design. I love that you can use some of the larger print fabrics. I'm always drawn to larger prints but never do projects that really work with them so this is perfect.

  11. Cheryl this is such a wonderfully classic pattern! It's very reminiscent of the first quilt I ever made which is making me very nostalgic to go home and snuggle under that one :)

  15. What you're saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I'm sure you'll reach so many people with what you've got to say.

  16. I loved making this block for our bee, Cheryl. It's so quick and rewarding! And I know EXACTLY what fabric I want to use to make a whole quilt. Whitewashed Cottage by Moda. I'm actually sewing up something else in it right now, so maybe I'm a little obsessed. But this pattern is perfect for the shabby chic feel of that fabric line.

  18. It really does look improvisational, but without the maker having to figure out how to fit the pieces all together., How fun Cheryl! I like the way everyone's quilt looks so different too.
