Queenie Queenie’s Beauty is a 3-color, 3-fabric quilt set on point. It measures approximately 79 x 79 inches. It is one of my more complex designs with different colorings for 2 of the 3 blocks. It also uses blocks you don’t see very often—Improved 9 Patch, Alabama Beauty and Drunkards Trail. Using Inklingo to print the templates on the reverse of the fabric makes sewing these blocks a piece of cake.

This design uses the Inklingo Orange Peel Deluxe Collection and the 4″ Drunkards Trail Collection. I colored the blocks in EQ7 with fabrics from Toscana by Northcott.

When I named this quilt, I didn’t have a Queenie in my family tree. [There are a couple of letters where I had to pick other names to use that weren’t in my tree.] Earlier this week, I was copying some Canadian land grant records to my research and saw a birth record for a Queenie Isabella Duthie born in 1911. I know I’m related to her because I recognize some of the other names in a partial online tree that included her, I just don’t know how we are related yet. Queenie married someone named Fairservice and she died in 1992 according to the online tree. I think she wanted me to find her so she could claim her quilt.

I don’t have a copy of the 4” Drunkards Trail Collection so I couldn’t finish filling in the chart below but you can use the information from the collection to figure the sizes to cut and print. To figure fabric yardage, see the section “Planning a Quilt” in the Inklingo collection.

Additional Colorways

The Original Colorway

I didn’t use fabric samples for the original design and liked the Delft Blue look. I couldn’t quite duplicate it in the fabric swatches in Electric Quilt so I switched tactics and went with some completely different colorways
