Lovely Traditional Quilt for Summer and Beyond |
This Quilt Will be Charming in Any Type of Fabric!
This traditional design will look great in just about any style and color of fabric. It’s perfect for 2 1/2″ inch strips, perhaps from a jelly roll or you can cut your own. Just be sure to choose fabrics of similar value so the design contrasts with the background.
Small-print pastels give it a vintage summery look, as would repro fabrics. But we can easily imagine it made up in colors for other seasons.
Nine-patch blocks and snowball blocks combine in an intriguing overall design. This is super easy to stitch together. It will be a quick quilt for experienced quilters and a good starter quilt for beginners with basic skills.
The finished quilt, from designer Barb Mapes, is 66″ x 78″. It won’t be hard to make it larger or smaller by adjusting the number of rows. A series of accenting borders would be lovely and would make the quilt larger, as well.
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!
