It’s the Perfect Antidote for Chilly Weather!
Beautiful batiks, or other low contrast textured prints, make a lovely quilt you’ll especially enjoy during gray weather. The vivid colors are eye-catching without being too bright and pop nicely against the white background.
Interesting star blocks offset with a beautiful pieced sashing create an intricate design that is far easier to make than it looks. Beginning quilters with good basic skills will be able to complete this quilt.
The crisp look of the quilt is due to the vivid colors against white. Play with color to make your own special rendition. Feature another color instead of the blue shown here, or make a softer version with a colored background.
Once completed, the quilt designed by Nancy Mahoney is 68″ x 68″.
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!
