Gardener’s Prize Quilt Pattern

gardener's prizePretty sure this quilt pattern isn’t that well known as Gardener’s Prize but probably goes by many other names. It looks like it would be as easy as a Dresden Plate but not as complicated as a Mariner’s Compass.

The pattern uses a combination of piecing for the points and then once assembled stitched down to a 15″ block as an applique.

This is a good size for lap quilts as they only require 12 blocks. My formula is 3 blocks wide by 4 down to make a 48″ x 64″ quilt. With Gardener’s Prize you could just make the ground blocks 16″ instead of 15″ and add a sashing or just keep them 15″ making your quilt 45″ x 60 inches.
