What’s new for you: how about trying the Patchwork Rosebud Quilt Block Pattern to make quilt blocks similar to the weather vane blocks, but with extra messages to make the design more floral. The traditional Patchwork Rosebud Quilt Block Pattern has been known by other names over the years, so don’t be surprised to see it listed in other ways.
The Rosebud block is assembled with a combination of scraps that are easy to cut and sew.
Final block size: 12 inch square
Rosebud Quilt Block Cutting Chart
Feel free to use the colors as you like and don’t hesitate to try out the Rosebud design to make a patchwork quilt.
Red – Two 4-7 / 8 “x 4-7 / 8” squares
Green – Four 2-7 / 8 “x 2-7 / 8” squares
Backligh – Two 6-7 / 8 “x 6-7 / 8” squares
– Six squares of 2-7 / 8 “
Use the easy method to patch quickly to build eight half-square triangle units of four 2-7 / 8 “light squares and four green squares of the same size. Each completed unit should measure a 2-1 / 2” square.
You can also use the Magic 8 square triangle method to create eight identical units of the same size with two larger pieces of fabric.
Assemble the quilting block with rosebud
For ease, refer to the illustration above when assembling the quilt block. Use a 1/4 inch calibrated seam allowance to assemble the patchwork. Even though it is an extra step, we recommend that you press to set seams before pressing permissions to one side.
- Cut all remaining squares in half once diagonally, from one corner to the opposite corner.
- Arrange a triangular cut by dividing a clear 2-7 / 8 “square next to two triangular half-square and green / white units, as shown in the upper left corner of the illustration. Sew to create a line. The stitched patches will be aligned to copper light.
- Press the stitching edges towards the light triangles.
- Sew a triangle cut by dividing a 4-7 / 8 “red square on the bottom edge of the unit created in Step 1, taking care to orient it as shown. Press the seam allowance towards the red triangle.
- Sew a triangular cut by dividing a 6-7 / 8 “white square on the unit in Step 2, as shown. Press the seam allowance towards the white triangle. The unit in pieces should measure 6-1 / 2” x 6- 1/2 “.
- Repeat to make a total of four identical units.
- Use the four Rosebud units to create two block lines, as shown. Press the sewing allowances between the rose buds towards the white triangle.
- Sew the two threads together to complete the quilt block.
The quilt block should measure 12-1 / 2 “x 12-1 / 2” square. If your block is smaller than it should be, or tilted along one side, press and check again. If you’re still not sure, use my easy quadrature method before sewing it on other blocks.
