This is a Quick Project with Simple Piecing!

Floating nine-patch and four-patch blocks are wonderful in this beautiful quilt. It’s a easy quilt with an endearing understated charm.

Start with 2 1/2″ jelly roll strips. Those can be from a fabric line you love or use leftovers from your stash. They create a pretty scrappy look against a solid background.

Play with colors and choose a background that shows them off nicely. A deep gray or even black will be stunning with bright colors. Or, a pastel background can give the quilt a retro look.

The finished quilt, from Emily Sew Busy, is 55″ x 65″.

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!
