A floral stripe is used for the sashing between blocks, adding even more interest to this lovely quilt. You could also fussy cut an interesting fabric or use a gingham or striped fabric for another look.
Select a beautiful print for the border and use that as the starting point for choosing fabrics for the blocks. Classic red and green in soft hues are beautiful, making us think of spring or even Christmas. The quilt will be just as charming in another color palette.
The pattern, by Monique Dillard, is for a 62″ x 77″ quilt. You can easily make it larger by adding more blocks.
