Make a Stunning Quilt from a Simple Square

Are you underestimating the power of a Simple Square?    Over here at Lindy J Quilts, we love us some square patchwork quilts.   And although mom and I are all about going back to basics, sometimes that simple square needs a little oomph if you know what I mean! 

And that is exactly what our Lottie’s Squares quilt pattern is all about.

Lottie's Squares

Lottie’s Squares takes a simple square, frames it on 2 sides with 1” strips, and BOOM!  You have just made that simple square pop. You also have yourself all kinds of cool and stunning quilt layout options.

Talk about versatility!  And BONUS– this pattern is a great way to make a dent in those fabric bits you’re hoarding over there in your studio.   For instance, we used our scraps from a custom order Nautical Baby Quilt to piece this latest quilt together.

Lottie's Squares

Our Lottie’s Squares Quilt Pattern offers two block sizes.  You can create 4” patches that form an 8” block or you can create 5” patches that form 10” blocks. 

We used the 4” patch for our latest Nautical Lottie’s Squares Quilt.

Check out a 5” patch version:

But you don’t have to use the “Lottie’s Squares” layout.  Here’s another way we used the 5” patch:

We call that one Window Panes.  Aren’t those deer the sweetest?

Whether you’re looking to go 4” or 5”, our Lottie’s Squares Quilt Pattern will walk you through all the steps.  You’ll get: 

  • A pdf download available immediately. 
  • Fabric requirements for baby, throw, twin, and queen-sized quilts.   
  • 8 pages of organized, clear instructions. 
  • Fabric requirements. 
  • 3 Additional Block Layout Options. 
  • Finishing Instructions 

And I should also mention, we’ve bundled up this pattern with 2 of our other beginner-friendly patterns and we’re offering all 3 at a discounted price in our shop.

But let’s say you want to bypass this whole “making-it-yourself” process.  Well you’re in luck, this beautiful quilt is available in our shop!  Only one though, so act fast to make it yours.

Here are the finished quilt stats: 

  • Measures 56” x 64” 
  • As you can see, we went with a blue and white nautical theme.   Don’t you love the little crabs and fish? 
  • Backing is made of a cozy light blue and starry flannel. Perfect for snuggling under the sea! 
  • Minimal straight-line quilting – just enough to give this quilt a glorious texture. 
  • Fun navy + white polka dot binding.
