Play With Color to Make This Quilt Uniquely Yours!

Bright 2 1/2″ jelly roll strips sparkle in this colorful quilt. White squares crisscross the quilt, taming the bold prints and providing contrast. A beautiful batik containing all the colors of the quilt is the perfect finish.

This fun quilt is an easy one to make. Choose a wide variety of fabrics or strips from a coordinated jelly roll to give it a scrappy look.

Calliope Quilt Pattern

You can optimize the design further by only using white in the crisscrossing squares. Another accent color will work, too, depending on the color combination you choose for the strips.

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!
