Geometrics, Florals, and Other Motifs Will Work Beautifully!
Fussy-cut prints turn a beautiful quilt design into something special. This stunning wall quilt will become an eye-catching focal point wherever you choose to hang it. Or display it on your table during special meals.
The quilt was designed around a particular print and fabric line (which is no longer available). However, it will translate nicely to other larger-scale prints and coordinating fabrics.
Part of the fun will be shopping for a print with motifs to show off in the fussy-cut pieces. While a geometric design was used in the example, florals and other print styles will be just as beautiful while producing totally different personalities. This is a great project for letting your inner designer shine.
Another option is to skip the fussy-cutting and emphasize the star design. The following quilt is very similar and shows how it looks made up in strong contrasting colors.
While the quilt looks complex, it’s easy enough for confident beginners. Flying geese units, squares and strips make up the design.
The completed quilt, designed by Helle-May Cheney, is 44″ square.
The pattern for the Christmas version is available here.
