Combine an Array of Colors in This Striking Quilt!
A riot of color is tamed by the dark crisscrossing squares in this modern take on a traditional favorite. Postage stamp squares in a wide variety of colors give the quilt a playful mood while being all grown up.
Select an assortment of fat quarters for the colorful squares and a dark fabric to pull the quilt together. A neutral border allows the overall pattern to take center stage.
While this is a simple quilt to make, there’s quite a bit of stitching involved. Take your time, enjoy the process and you’ll be rewarded with a stunning quilt to pass down through your family.
The pattern, from designer Carmen Geddes, is for a 48 1/2″ x 62 1/2″ quilt. Add more blocks for a bed sized quilt or make it smaller for a striking quilt to display on a table or wall.
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!
