It’s release day for the Bohippian quilt pattern. Yayayayay!
This feels like a long time coming! And I’ve done things a smidgen different this time around, I’ve made a little video chatting with you about the quilt pattern. Hope you enjoy!
See all the different blog posts on Bohippian here. Also, keep scrolling! I have pics from all my testers who made the pillow version of this pattern below!
Bohippian is a basic Grandmother’s Flower Garden (GFG) style quilt, a very popular pattern style in the 1900s. Though they remain popular, it’s hard to find a modern GFG quilt pattern. That’s why I’ve written the Bohippian pattern.
You’ll notice a few differences between the GFG quilts of the past and Bohippian. With Bohippian, the hexagons are larger and instead of the zigzag edge on the perimeter of the quilt, it has a modern straight edge. Also, this pattern uses only 4 fabrics and all the cutting instructions are given upfront.
If you’ve never tried English paper piecing (EPP), I’ll walk you through it with both this pattern and video tutorials. This pattern is written to take out all the guesswork, plus includes helpful charts to keep up with the work you’ve completed. The Bohippian pattern is broken up into three sections, based on the project sizes.
Epp is meant to be worked through slowly. It’s a restful and mediative hobby that will keep your hands busy while the rest of your body relaxes. Don’t rush it! Instead take your time and let the quilt be finished on a natural timeframe.

I loved watching all of these pillows come together. The testers really seemed to enjoy it too! If you click on the individual items it will show you who made which pillow.
