    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

    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

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

    Your quilt is gorgeous, colors are my absolute favorite! I just love it!! I love the idea of adding machine embroidery. I am fascinated by Envelope quilts for some reason. Think this will definitely be added to my list.... ever growing as it is! :lol:

    Thanks, Kind of reminds me of something my grandmother would have made. Although it's for my daughter, I thought of my grandmother while I made it. The different materials reminds me of the prints she used to make her dresses out of.
