Lucy and Sam both stop bike riding to rest at a pretty park in the center of town. Their eyes meet. They smile and start a conversation. A summer romance begins on the park bench. Park Bench is the third quilt block in the Summer Romance quilt. The other blocks tell the story of Sam and Lucy, and riding off together in the sunset. Each pattern is designed to fit comfortably on a 12 inch block. The pattern as sewn in the picture uses raw edge applique which frays when washed. This results in a rustic, folk look to the quilt. This style of quilt block is designed to be free easy and not perfect in any way. That makes it charming!
Approximate time to complete: 2-3 hours.
This pattern includes complete easy to follow numbered step by step directions. There are full size printable patterns for the block appliques. The pattern is written with metric units in parenthesis. If you have any questions or concerns about the pattern please contact me.
I love designing and making quilts, especially folk and story quilts. All my patterns are easy to follow with step by step directions and photos. Every pattern begins with a quilt created and sewn on my table top machine.
I have a blog where I share the design process behind the patterns, MarylandQuilter.com. Come by and visit!
