This Will Also Be Lovely as a Multi-Colored Scrap Quilt!
Soft gray adds a fresh twist to what could have been a classic red and white quilt. The variety of red print fabrics also update the look. The interesting borders add complexity without increasing the difficulty of making this charming quilt.
It’s easy to imagine this quilt in other colors, as well, either with gray or with another color instead of the gray. It would also be lovely with scrappy star blocks tied together with a predominant color in the borders.
Basic nine-patch blocks with half-square triangle star points mean this is an easy top to piece (learn how to quickly make 8 half-square triangles at a time here).
The pattern, by Karen M. Walker of Laugh Yourself into Stitches is for a finished quilt that’s 58″ x 73″. Make it larger by adding more star blocks.
