I don't have an actual pattern, but I took picture as I went along. I am brand new at this so I hope it works.
Cut your squares 11"x11" - the number of squares depends on how large you want to make yor quilt


Top flap are 11" x 5 1/2" cut at an angle toward the center


Lay the flap and the lace on top of square


Sew the flap and lace to the square at the same time


Cut 1 1/2" strips of material


Pin the 1 1/2" strip of material right sides together to the bottom of the first square





Press open the strip the lay the bottom of the first square on the top of the second square right sides together and sew


Continue until desired length


I am making a large lap quilt so I made mine 5 squares in length and 6 squares in width


If you want to stagger the envelopes add 11" x 5 1/2" piece material to top of first square then bottom of second etc.Any embroidery should be done before you add to the rows. Cut 1 1/2" strips of material the length of the rows. Connect them in the same manner as the squares


Press open the strip lay rows right sides together and sew the length of the row. Continue adding rows untill desired width


To frame the quilt cut strips of 4 1/2" material sew to top and bottom and then to the sides or visa vera


Top piece sewn on

This one just covers a double twin sized bed.

I added embellishment after it was put together like the bows on the flaps and the lace roses
