The oversized Carpenter’s Square block is sized to fit a bed. The construction is super easy with no Y-seams. Plus, it will be beautiful in any color scheme.
This version, by designer Deonn from Quiltscapes, was made from a 10″ layer cake and has a lovely scrappy look. You can easily coordinate the colors to suit your tastes, even giving it a more colorful background.
The following quilt is being made in reds and greens for the holidays. It’s going to be a gorgeous quilt.
Note: Sharp-eyed readers pointed out that the quilt below is not the same pattern as the Carpenter’s Wife quilt shown above (Thank you. We don’t know what we were thinking!). Rather than remove it, we left it so you can imagine how beautiful the red, pink and greens would be made up in the Carpenter’s Wife pattern.
