Free Pattern – Foundation-Pieced Pickle Dish Block


Here’s a pattern inspired by the very first issue of The Quilt Life! Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims held their first TQL Cook-Off in April, 2010. The color was green and Alex chose a recipe for her dad’s dill pickles as her challenge recipe.

You won’t be in a pickle when you try this foundation-pieced Pickle Dish block pattern. Using paper foundations makes precision piecing no problem. Dig into your fabric stash for a fun multi-color pickle-point blend!

The pattern makes 9″ (finished) blocks. If you enjoy the look and easy foundation-piecing of this pattern, you’ll love making a whole quilt full! It’s also the perfect size for a small 9″ x 36″ table runner when you make just four, or table-topper of any size, then bind as you please. It’s a good idea to always check your printed template for size accuracy as printers occasionally seem to have minds of their own.
