Mix Them with Smaller Prints and Solids!
Do you have beautiful large-scale prints you’re not sure how to use? They’ll be wonderful in this quilt and show off to perfection.
Mix large-scale and smaller scale prints, then use a quiet print or solid for the sashing accent to give the eye resting spots. Any color theme you love will be great in this quilt.
Whether you go with strong contrasts or more subdued, the quilt will turn out great. You’ll find several examples below by the designer and others.

You’ll need a large 60 degree ruler to make this quilt (unless you want to cut a template). The Creative Grids 60 Degree Triangle Ruler is suggested, although any 12.5″ 60 degree ruler will work (you’ll find a selection here).

- Baby – 35″ x 48″
- Lap – 49″ x 60″
- Twin – 63″ x 84″
- King – 104″ x 108″

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!
