Mazarin - My First Quilt Pattern!

Sep 14, 2016

I am beyond excited to share with you today my very first quilt pattern - Mazarin!

Mazarin is inspired by the lesser known diamond cut, and features a generous 6" center block that's perfect for fussy cuts and showing off those gorgeous prints you want to preserve and cant stand to cut into! I hope you'll love this pattern as much as I do...

First off - these blocks are simple. You may recognize it, because I designed them for the recent Cloud9 New Block Blog Hop and they require a beginner - early intermediate level skill set. Each step of the block construction process comes with a detailed photo tutorial! It could not be simpler!

The block itself is free, but if you want the full quilt pattern with fabric requirements, cutting instructions, etc for a full quilt you'll need to buy the pattern.

You can purchase the pattern from My Shop, Payhip, or Craftsy

The details...

  • Block finishes at 12.5"
  • Quilt finishes at 54" x 54"
  • Photo tutorial for each step
  • Easy and fun - perfect for fussy cuts!
  • Nearly waste free (little to no trimming)

*For a 54" x 54" finished quilt

My pattern testers...

Aren't these quilts beautiful? I could totally see this quilt done in Heather Ross, Lizzy House, or Cotton and Steel with some amazing fussy cutting. The best part? This block is so beginner friendly but will still give you that beautiful professionally made look - everyone will think you're an expert!

I hope you give this pattern a try! You can purchase it from My Shop, Payhip, or Craftsy
