A Surprisingly Simple Quilt with a Retro Look |
This Quilt Will be Stunning in Vivid Colors, Too!
Broken Dishes blocks in soft colors and a crisp white background combine for the perfect quilt for lazy days during warm weather months. Take it on a picnic or snuggle under it on the front porch on cool evenings. It will also be lovely on your bed all year around!
The soft small-print fabrics give this quilt a retro look. It would be wonderful made up in vivid colors for a more modern look, as well.
Choose a fat quarter for each block and a cheerful accent color, like the orange shown here, to give it zing.
This tutorial for making 8 half-square triangles at a time will help to make this project go quickly.
The quilt, by designer Michelle N. Cavanna, is 69″ x 85″ once completed. Leave off a few of the blocks for a lap, baby or table quilt.
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!
