This Pretty Pattern Will Be Wonderful in Your Favorite Colors!

This gorgeous quilt uses simple blocks to create a stunning medallion. Careful placement of color and value allows the design to emerge from easy 9-patch blocks.

Good value contrast between lights and darks will allow you to recreate the striking design in fabrics you love. Select closely coordinated colors, as in the quilt shown here, or mix it up for variety.

Daydreams QuiltAs long as fabrics close in value are chosen for the light, dark and very dark pieces you’ll have a stunning quilt when you’re done. Finish it off with beautiful fabrics for the borders.

The pattern, designed by Maria Umhey, is for an 81 1/2˝ x 81 1/2˝ queen sized quilt.

“Daydreams” appears in the McCall’s Quick Quilts April/May 2015 issue.

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!
