Your Favorite Color Combination Will Be Gorgeous In This Quilt!
A variety of prints in plaids, polka dots and more enhance the design of this beautiful quilt. This is a great pattern for using up some of those scraps so start sorting your favorites into lights and darks. Fat quarters also work well with this project.
Whether you decide to go clear and bright or more subdued is up to you, and either option will be lovely. Choose inner and outer border fabrics in colors that pull all the scraps together and give the quilt a beautiful finish.
Nearly the entire quilt is made of half-square triangles, with one light and one dark triangle in each block. Stitch this up more quickly by making 8 half-square triangles at a time. Click here for instructions.
The finished quilt, by designer Christina McCourt, is 64″ x 76″. It won’t be hard to adjust the size by adapting the number of blocks used.
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!
