A Striking Trip Around the World Quilt Variation |
Play with Colors and Values to Make Your Own Unique Quilt!
This complex looking quilt is actually much easier to make than it seems. The challenge is in keeping things organized, not in the cutting or stitching.
Jelly rolls make the quilt go together quickly. Just make sure the ones you choose can be clearly divided into 4 values (from light to dark), with an equal number of strips for each of the 4 values. A jelly roll of a solid fabric is all that’s needed for the predominant blue (or whatever color you prefer).
The pattern leaves a lot of room for experimentation, both in layout and color variations (for example white instead of the solid blue). Examples are provided with the tutorial.
The quilt, by designer Karin Vail of Cascade Quilts, is 90″ x 90″ once completed.
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. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
