Change the Look Entirely by Switching Lights and Darks!
This complex looking quilt is stunning in any color palette. It’s a great pattern to play with, as it can look vintage, modern and anything in between, depending on the fabrics you choose.
It’s surprisingly easy to make, too. The pinwheels are created when the blocks are combined, making the quilt far simpler to construct than it looks.
Start with 2 1/2″ jelly roll strips or cut your own from yardage. Depending on how you place the light and dark values, the look of the quilt can change considerably.
Instructions are provided by the designer, Diana Beaubien from Pleasant Valley Creations, for five quilt sizes:
- 47″ x 58″ – Crib
- 58″ x 70″ – Lap
- 58″ x 81″ – Twin
- 81″ x 103″ – Queen
- 115″ x 115″ – King
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!
