Cottage Linen Closet Quilt designed by Lisa Dopking

Cottage Linen Closet Quilt 2022

The quilt is made from very simple blocks.

Center Squares/Blocks

Cut 144 x 5” Squares

Sew together to make a larger 12 X 12 squares.

For this quilt, I made 9 X 16 Patch blocks i.e.: 16 x 5” squares

I used the smaller prints and kept the large floral prints for the hearts.  I also used a few of the coordinating Bella solids.

16 patch block

Heart Blocks


Unfinished size – 9 ½” X 10”

You will need 24 in total

Cut 48 - 10” X 5” Rectangles (12 of 4 prints with large flowers)

Cut 48 X 6” Squares from Plain fabric

Cut 96 X 3 ¼” Squares fabric

Make 24 as shown below and 24 the mirror image.


Sew the two sides of the hearts together matching the seams. 

Sew 6 blocks together and sew along opposite sides.

The corner blocks are made from leftover HST (Half square triangles) after making the heart blocks.  To make them the right size I added strips to 2 sides and then trimmed them to fit.

You can use the excess HST to make a cushion cover or a table runner




Happy Sewing!
