This Refreshing Quilt Will Be Lovely In Any Color!
Variations of turquoise create a soothing and refreshing quilt. Batiks give it depth while allowing the overall design to predominate. Mottled and other low-contrast prints will work just as well with this pattern.
This easy quilt will be gorgeous in other colors as well. Get the full impact by staying with a monochromatic color scheme, choosing variations of one color. Can’t you imagine it in red or purple? Add a few prints that read as slightly off color to give it variety and interest, such as the prints with green and navy in this predominantly turquoise version.
This pattern will also be lovely made up with scraps. Imagine giving it a 1930s reproduction look by choosing a variety of small-scale middle-value prints.
While being easy enough for beginning quilters, those with several quilts under their belts will appreciate how quickly this stitches together.
The finished quilt is 63″ x 79″.
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!
