Choose a Beautiful Fabric to Showcase in This Quilt!

Have you ever found a gorgeous print fabric you want to save for something special? This wall quilt may be just what you’re looking for.

Select a fabulous fabric for the border then play off of that for the rest of the quilt. Choose several fabrics of similar color and value that go well with the border fabric, then set everything off with a dark fabric for the brown you see in this quilt. The dark fabric defines the overall pattern, adding contrast to the lighter fabrics used throughout the quilt.

A Scrappy Romance Wall Quilt Pattern

The centers of each block are made with rows of 2″ squares. This ingenious technique will save time and increase your accuracy when piecing a lot of little squares.

The finished quilt is 49 1/2″ square  and will be lovely on your wall or table. It would also make a nice baby quilt when made with bright youthful fabrics.

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.
