Cottage Love Quilt Pattern - a Throw in Sweet Picnic!

Cottage Love Quilt Pattern - a Throw in Sweet Picnic!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Today I'm sharing a brand new quilt pattern - Cottage Love - a quick and easy design made from a variety of precuts or stash fabrics.  Every size you could want to make is included in the quilt pattern - 7 in all - and it's so fun to sew!  

With so many precut options that work for this pattern, this is a great stash quilt.  

The Cottage Love quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts shop.

Cottage Love Quilt Pattern

Cottage Love quilt pattern includes all of the sizes - 7 in all - so no matter what size of quilt you have in mind, we've gotcha covered.  There are two Throw sizes, too, cause sometimes you want a quilt-for-two-to-snuggle quilt.  :)
  • Baby quilt size
  • Lap quilt size
  • Throw quilt size
  • Large Throw quilt size
  • Twin bed size
  • Queen bed size
  • King bed size
The quilt shown is the Throw size, made by Joanne, one of my professional sewists.

Cottage Love is quick and so easy and beginner friendly.  Every seam nests in the quilt top to help your piecing be more accurate and make assembly possible without pinning.  I love nesting seams, so I try to find a way to make them work in every pattern I write and give detailed pressing instructions to make it happen, when possible.

Precut Charms, Layer Cakes, or FQ Friendly

Cottage Love works great for using up your stash since it uses charm squares, layer cakes, or fat quarters.  It's easy to use your scrap bins - just cut the number of squares indicated in the pattern.

Sweet Picnic Fabrics and Quilt Kits

This quilt is made with Sweet Picnic fabrics by Riley Blake.  It's such a sweet collection of purples, aquas, reds, and golds - with a variety of florals, ginghams, cherries, bicycles, and tone-on-tones prints.  They aren't colors I would have put together myself, but they play together so well.

Really so many fabrics would look great in this pattern.  It's suitable for reproduction and traditional fabrics, and farmhouse style fabrics like Sweet Picnic, but also modern fabrics such as varying shades of gray and black prints.

We have curated Cottage Love Throw Quilt Kits in Sweet Picnic.  You'll find them right here in our shop.

We also have Cottage Love Throw Quilt Kits in Daisy Fields.

Longarm Quilting

I sent this quilt off to be quilted by Megan of Best Quilting.  She used the Ribbon Curls design in cream thread.  She also runs HandiQuilter machines, as I do in my quilt studio.

Wide Backing

The wide backing used on this quilt is Dry Brush in Cream, available right here in The Wide Back Shop.  The subtle shading perfectly complements the quilt top.

The Cottage Love quilt pattern got its name from the picket fence look on the edges of the quilt.  I already have a Picket Fence quilt pattern (check it out here), so Cottage Love was chosen with the notion that a cottage might have a white picket fence.
