It’s Easy Enough for Beginners!
Little squares of color pop against gray, white and black in this striking quilt. It’s an eye-catching combination that gives the impression of being colorful while made primarily from neutrals.
It’s also an easy quilt to put together, even for beginners. Strip-piecing makes it a relatively quick project. Plus, straight-line quilting with the walking foot will work nicely to finish it up.
We just had to play in Photoshop a bit to see what the quilt would look like in darker colors. It’s just as striking and an idea to consider.
Instructions are provided by the designer, Shannon from The Flemings Nine, for quilts in two sizes:
- Lap – 60″ x 72″
- Twin – 72″ x 96″
You’ll find a nice selection of Kona solids to use in this quilt here.
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!
