Figgy Four Patch Quilt


 Finished size approximately 66 X 88
Created by Vickie E


• Figgy Pudding Layer cake ™
• Figgy Pudding Charm pack ™
• 3 yards Figgy Pudding sku# 3015054 Grunge Brown
• Batting 75X 96
• 6 yards Backing & binding




Choose 40 prints from your layer cake and square to 9.5 inches. Set aside. Then choose 32 prints from the charm pack. There will be a few extra charms which I set aside for a coordinating pillow.
Sew 4 charms into a row.
Continue until there are 4 rows of 4 charms and then join the rows.

Repeat that process with 16 more charm squares. They should measure 18.5 inches square.

I used my design wall for placement of all my Layer cake squares. Once I decided on the arrangement I began to sew them into 4-patches.


You will need 10 4-patches measuring 18.5 inches square.
Here they are on my design wall.

The next step is to cut the sashing and border strips.

I do not care to piece my borders. I cut the selvage off the entire 3 yards. I save it for selvage quilts! Once the selvage edge is cut that becomes my straight edge for cutting. You need 10 strips cut at 3.5 inches X WOF (which is about 108 inches). If you notice, I left the fabric folded as it came off the bolt. Therefore when I make my cut...I am actually making 2 strips per cut. 5 cuts will yield 10 strips. There will be some leftover fabric which I am using to make a coordinating pillow (tutorial soon??).


Take a strip and cross cut them 18.5 inches, do this for a total of 8 strips.

Sew the 18.5 inch sashings to the blocks.



Then add the horizontal sashings which can be cross cut to approximately 66 inches. You will need 5 horizontal strips. I would measure your quilt before cutting as there is always variations in stitch width that could affect the overall size of the quilt.

Finally add the 2 outer border strips. They will be cut to the size of your quilt about 88 inches. Quilt as desired and bind. I hope you enjoy this tutorial. It is really a quick quilt to piece since the blocks are 18 inches finished. I think this would be a great guy quilt with the dark brown tones!
