This Gorgeous Quilt Isn’t Just for Christmas |
Make it Up in Your Favorite Colors and for Any Season!
This lovely quilt is gorgeous for displaying at Christmas. It would lend a cheery ambiance however you choose to display it. We especially love how Cozy Little Quilts used it as the centerpiece for their Christmas decor.
The pattern will look great made up in other colors, as well. Any pleasing color combination will be wonderful in this quilt.
Here are some examples from a quilt-along group to spark your creativity.

We especially like the border and quilting on this version from The Quilted Pineapple.
The “Country Charmer” quilt was designed by Lynn Wilder of Sew’n Wild Oaks.
The completed quilt is 60″ x 70″, although you could easily make a smaller wall quilt by deleting a few rows from the center. Remove one row on the narrow side and two on the long side for a square wall hanging.
Construction is all simple piecing, so even a fairly new quilter could sew this quilt top together. Cut accurately, sew a consistent quarter inch seam and be careful not to stretch the bias edges on the triangular pieces. You’ll soon have a gorgeous “Country Charmer” quilt of your own!
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).
