Go Vintage or Modern with This Stunning Quilt |
Just Change the Fabrics to Change the Mood!
Two simple blocks combine to create a gorgeous quilt that makes us think of strolling along garden paths during warm weather. Of course, this quilt will be just as stunning in deeper colors, too.
Select a nice variety of colorful fabrics from your stash for the blocks. You can even use up leftovers in this project. Yardage will work, too. Stay with softer colors and small prints for a vintage look or bolder prints for a more modern feel.
If yellow isn’t your thing, choose a different color to predominate and tie the array of block colors together. We can also imagine this made up with vivid colors against a dark background, as well as in a two- or three-color combination. There’s so much you can do with this pattern!
The quilt is relatively easy to make, although it’s not necessarily a quick project. That’s OK, as you’ll be rewarded with a wonderful quilt when you’re done that you’ll enjoy for many years.
The pattern, from designer Nancy Mahoney, is for an 84 3/4″ x 84 3/4″ 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!
