Fresh and Lovely Colors Make a Pretty Quilt

Choose Fabrics from Your Stash for a Charming Color Combination!
Pretty flowers and stars create a lovely pattern across the face of this quilt. The beautiful colors are not too soft, not too bright and just plain charming. A pieced border pulls all the fabrics together and adds to this quilt’s considerable charm.
A beautiful green ties the design together and gives it a light, fresh look. The pop of navy adds just the right touch of contrast to make all the colors sing.
Two charm packs provide the scrappy look. You can use scraps too, or make it easy on yourself and start with charm squares for less cutting. Choose fabrics from a particular fabric line to speed fabric selection or use up leftover 5″ squares in your stash.
The quilt is just as lovely in more coordinated colors, like the holiday version shown below. This example is from a kit featured by My Timeless Day.
This is a relatively easy quilt to make, although you’ll want solid cutting and piecing skills under your belt.
The pattern, from Carried Away Quilting, is for a 74 1/2” x 74 1/2” quilt.
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!
