I recently released the throw quilt pattern from my Communique Quilt, but have talked to a few people who are interested in making the design into a bed quilt.  Because of this, I’ve set up the full king-size layout for you.

 

In this version of the pattern, I’ve marked the throw quilt design in grey, so you can easily see what the additions to the design are.  Those editions are also broken out into 4 sections for you to add to the throw quilt design to complete your king-size bed quilt.

  1. I just hit the JACKPOT!!!
    I found your Communique Quilt Layout- This find just saved me a LOT of layout work, and it is truly perfect what I had in my mind… I’ll be making queen size so editing it a bit and I will post a photo when I finish my gift quilt…. light blues, lt & dk grays and a touch of black! My teen girls pick the fabrics colors so well see how it all blends together. I am SO excited to find your Quilt Layout wheewwwww saved me so much time.

  2. Thank you for sharing. I’ve been wanting to make a king size quilt but was overwhelmed by the size. This will break it into pieces and more manageable. Can’t wait to start 2019 with this project.

    1. I’m so glad that you find this helpful. Just remember that the blocks are listed in finished sizes, so you’ll want to add you seam allowance in.

  3. Thanks for sharing, I made a King size one for the grandson’s other grandma.. She loved it. I used Christmas fabric.

  4. I’m new to quilting so am having a hard time figuring out how much fabric i need. This is just a scrappy quilt so by looking at it you just used up fabric you had available? I so appreciate you giving this pattern to all of us, just thinking it is too much for a beginner maybe.

    1. I’m a fabric hoarder, so it was easy for me to make this quilt with the scraps I had in my stash. I did pick up a few fabrics that went with the panel pieces I wanted to use in my 16″ blocks, but mostly, I pulled from my stash, and made lots of scrappy log cabin blocks. Because I worked in sections, and made my blocks 1st, I was also able to incorporate new fabrics throughout the quilt, if I found I needed more of one color or another.

      But, if you are a beginner, or just not comfortable purchasing lots of random amounts of fabric, you might start out with the Squares and Strips from Cluck Cluck Sew. All of it’s blocks are the same size, she had a cutting diagram, and a chart for how much fabric you need depending on how large you want your quilt to be. I’ve made several variations of this quilt, and they have all turned out lovely. You can find her pattern here — http://cluckclucksew.com/2012/06/tutorial-squares-and-strips-bed-quilt.html

  5. Has anyone made this as a blue and white sampler quilt? I am planning to make one and this lay seems like it would work well.

  6. Hello~
    Somewhere I saw sample blocks good for certain sizes you have. Could you please email the list to me?
    Thank you for the fun pattern!

  7. Thank you so much for your generosity in sharing this pattern. I have just started experimenting with scrappy quilts, I love this I’ll send you a pic when the top is done. I only get 2or 3 quilts done in a year so it might take a little while.

    1. Yea for quilting! Don’t feel bad about “only” getting 2 or 3 done in a year. It’s been ages since I’ve made any progress on any of my quilts. It’s hard to quilt and watch a tiny human.
