I should have just waited a day to show you this 16 patch quilt. I got it assembled today.

While there’s nothing difficult about piecing a 16 patch quilt, I like this variation because it’s easy to use fat quarters and with the larger blocks, it goes quickly.

I found a free pattern online for this quilt several years ago but that blog is no longer active. After a lot of searching, I found an archived link but I have no idea how long it will be active so if you are interested, make sure you save a copy for yourself.

St Louis 16 Patch –

This is the 4th time I’ve made it and I’ve been happy with how all of them have turned out.


  1. You KNOW we don’t mind seeing it again now that it’s a quilt top! Thanks for sharing the link you found for the tutorial, too. I’ve been wanting to make a 16-Patch quilt and this supersized block version will be just right for the quilt that I have in mind!

  2. Stunning! Every single oneI have ideas for scraps I think I can pull it off

  3. The Internet Archive’s links shouldn’t expire, unless, of course, they run out of money for storage! They are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and I send them an annual contribution to thank them for all the lost patterns I’ve found there. Plus vintage radio shows, old 78 recordings, digitized books, and much more.

  4. Love this pattern!! I have been collecting Liberty Fabric from Etsy and I plan on making this. There is a You Tube English lady who makes this pattern with Liberty Fabric. She has made some beautiful ones. She is a very interesting lady and I love watching her do the many things she does. It is called The Last Homely House on You Tube. Very calming to listen to her talk and go about her day.

  5. Love this quilt and have wanted to make one. So thank you for the link with the directions and pictures. Now I just need more hours in the day. LOL!
    Also love the blanket you are working on. Looks so soft and comfy and the colors are perfect.
