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 11x11

Cut your squares 11x11 - the number of squares depends on how large you want to make yor quilt
attachment-246078.jpe

Top flap are 11 x 5 1/2 cut at an angle toward the center
attachment-246079.jpe

Lay the flap and the lace on top of square
attachment-246080.jpe

Sew the flap and lace to the square at the same time
attachment-246081.jpe

Cut 1 1/2 strips of material
attachment-246082.jpe

Pin the 1 1/2 strip of material right sides together to the bottom of the first square
attachment-246083.jpe

Press open the strip the lay the bottom of the first square on the top of the second square right sides together and sew
attachment-246088.jpe

Continue until desired length

I am making a large lap quilt so I made mine 5 squares in length and 6 squares in width
attachment-246094.jpe

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
attachment-246098.jpe

Press open the strip lay rows right sides together and sew the length of the row. Continue adding rows untill desired width
attachment-246099.jpe

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

That was my first try at posting something like this, I tried again and it worked out well but ran out of time to add the very last picture.

Here is the final picture.

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
