Who Knew Black Could Be So Lighthearted!
Cut some squares and sashing strips, make some half-square triangles, and before you know it you’ll have made this lovely black, white and yellow quilt.
A mix of medium and large scale prints give the quilt a fresh and modern look. The white in the prints bleed into the white background, softening the edges, as well as the black and gray fabrics. The addition of sunny yellow gives the quilt a young, cheerful feel.
Red would be lovely in this quilt as well, replacing the yellow, as would royal blue or just about any crayon color that appeals to you.
The quilt, by designer Chelsea Andersen for Riley Blake Designs, is a simple one to stitch together. Use your preferred method of making accurate half-square triangles and it will sew together easily.
The finished quilt is 60” x 72”. Add or delete rows of blocks to make it any size you like. It would be lovely as a table topper, baby quilt or bed-sized 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!
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!
