Temples – Logan Temple Panel Quilt + FREE Tutorial!

We are excited to share another beautiful Panel Quilt with you today, this one featuring the Logan Temple, located in Logan, UT. This gorgeous fabric panel is part of the Temples collection designed by Amanda Herring.

I loved the flowers on this panel and decided to draw from the splash of pink and incorporate the color into the rest of the quilt. The quilt features three simple borders, with the first border being a fun check design using Riley Blake Confetti Cotton. The navy border Text print is part of the Temples collection and coordinates beautifully with this Logan fabric panel. The final border is Super Pink Confetti Cotton, which helps highlight those gorgeous flowers on the fabric panel. So simple, yet so cute and modern!

To make this quilt, you will need:

  • 1 Logan Temple fabric panel
  • 74 – 3″ squares Confetti Cotton Sunshine
  • 74 – 3″ squares Confetti Cotton Riley White
  • 6 – 6″ x WOF strips Navy Temples Text
  • 7 – 2″ x WOF strips Confetti Cotton Super Pink
  • 7 – 2 1/2″ x WOF strips Confetti Cotton Super Pink (for binding)
  • fabric for the quilt back (we used Fuchsia Blossom)
  • quilt batting

Start by making the checked border. I prefer to make four patch blocks and sew the blocks together into a row. If you are new to quilting and sewing a four patch, you can follow a great tutorial found HERE. Trim the squares down to 5″ squares.

The sides will be attached to the panel first. Each side checker border is made up of 9 four patch blocks. Sew the blocks into one long strip, then sew them to each side of the panel. Press.

To sew the top and bottom check strips, sew 9 four patch blocks + a 2 patch block to form one long strip. Pay attention to how your colors are alternating. When you add the top and bottom strips, you don’t want to find two yellow squares or two white squares side-by-side when they meet the side strips.

*The top and bottom strips may be just a bit longer than the panel + sides. If this is the case, you can opt to trim the sides down a little after sewing them to the top and bottom, or, in my case, I wanted the seams to match up perfectly, so I carefully eased the strips as I sewed.

Next, add the navy Text border strips to each side, then to the top and bottom. Press.

Add the 2″ Confetti Cotton Super Pink strips to the sides, then top and bottom. Press.

Make your quilt sandwich (quilt back + batting + quilt top), baste, and quilt either by hand, using your home machine, or send it off to a professional quilter.

I quilted this on my home machine using a simple all-over meandering design. I used an Aurifil thread in white. Easy and fast!

Finally, bind the quilt with the 2 1/2″ wide Confetti Cotton Super Pink strips. Using the same color for the binding and outside border makes it look seamless – like one fabric, which is always a nice option.

I used Fuchsia Blossom for the quilt back. And that’s all there is to it! This is such a lovely, meaningful quilt – full of optimism and cheer, and perfect for gift giving.
