Villa Rosa Designs “Peace” Pattern Quilt Top Finish

I was in Ganado, Texas at Two Chicks Quilting and found the most lovely Sunny Side Up fabric by Corey Yoder for Moda, and thought that the Villa Rosa Designs Peace pattern would be perfect for it.

It’s a simple square-in-a-square design with lattice (sashing) in between the rows. Blocks are made up of 4 square-in-a-square sets.

I used a Jelly Roll and yardage for the yellow centers and 4″ outer border.

The pattern calls for 42 2.5″ strips which is exactly what was in the Jelly Roll. Two of the strips wouldn’t work: a yellow that matched the center and a white-on-white that wouldn’t work with the lattice. So by removing those two strips, I had to alter the block count. I figured I could have either just dropped a whole row of blocks, but I thought it would be more interesting to make a single row of blocks of two at the top and bottom. I love how it turned out!

The backing and binding are on the way! Can’t wait to get this on the longarm. 🙂

  1. Pretty. Have you finished the Nancy Rink BOM quilt? I bought the pattern.

    • Here’s a video you need to see that highlights how the quilting is more important now than the piecing. A lot of these former master piecers have upped their game with longarming. Now it’s all about creating design in “negative space”. Some of these quilts from the 2019 AQS Show in Lancaster, PA are unbelievable. Remember the post I had last May when I went to a class in Austin with Claudia Pfiel? Her quilt, that I have a photo in front of in my post, took 2nd place! You’ll love this…

  2. beautiful….I think I have that pattern!
