It Makes a Great Charity Quilt!

Scraps of any color work beautifully in this striking quilt. Or use two packs of 5″ charm squares or leftover squares from your stash. The background pulls everything together so that just about any combination of prints will work nicely together.

If navy isn’t your thing, go ahead and change the background to whatever you want. The quilt will be beautiful in any color combination.

Make the Connection Quilt Pattern

While it was designed as a charity quilt, this is one we’d love to keep for ourselves. It’s an easy quilt to sew together and will be fun to make up in various colors and sizes.

Make the Connection Quilt Pattern

The completed quilt, designed by Jo Kramer and Kelli Hanken of Jo’s Country Junction, is 68 1⁄2″ × 84 1⁄2″. Material lists and cutting instructions are included in the downloadable pattern for the following quilt sizes: 44 ½” square, 44 ½” × 52 ½”, and 60 ½” × 68 ½”.

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!
