This Pretty Quilt Gives Traditional a Fresh Look |
A Lovely Quilt in Just About Any Color Scheme!
Pretty floral prints are the starting point for this traditional quilt design. The blocks have movement built in, adding interest to the quilt.
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.
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!
