Select a Lovely Combination in Your Colors!
Stars accent this quilt beautifully, floating in the open spaces between the chains. Adapted from an Irish Chain quilt, four-patches add interest to an already beautiful design.
Choose a wide variety of fat quarters for the chains and stars. The combination used here is made up of fabrics that are fairly similar in value, creating cohesive chains to contrast with the light background. Notice how there are both warm and cool colors and pops of soft black to create interest.
This is a fairly easy quilt to make and one that will go together relatively quickly. Yet, is imparts a warm and welcoming personality that will be at home just about anywhere.
The finished quilt, designed by Carrie Nelson, is 81 1/2″ x 81 1/2″.
You’ll find the pattern for the “Ginger Belle” quilt in Miss Rosie’s Spice of Life Quilts.
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!
