You’ll be Proud to Call This Quilt Your Own!

Intricate piecing and inspired color choices make this quilt one you’ll be very proud to call your own. All the elements are simple to piece. Just be as accurate as possible so everything fits together nicely.

The quilt is stunning in any closely coordinated color theme. Gradations of color impart a shimmer to the quilt. Batiks are lovely, although other low-contrast prints will be as well.

Instructions are provided, by designer Deana from Dreamworthy Quilts, for a 86″ x 96″ Queen sized quilt and a 70″ x 70″ Throw.

The quilt was created as a Quilt Along for Fort Worth Fabric Studio, so the instructions are spread over several tutorials. They all can be found at the following page.

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!
