Patchwork Houses Add to its Traditional Appeal!
Classic red and blue on a cream background give this quilt a traditional look. Display it on a wall or use it as a lap quilt to give your home a beautiful Americana accent.
Small-scale prints contribute to the traditional look. Larger modern prints will give it a delightful updated personality.
The house blocks are simple to construct. Just be careful not to stretch the bias edges on the triangles (spray starch will help).
The finished quilt 50 1⁄2″ square. It was inspired by “Close Quarters” from designer Wendy Sheppard and is from American Patchwork & Quilting.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources.
