A Beautiful Quilt With or Without the Intricate Border!

A wide range of “ugly” floral prints come together in a stunning scrap quilt. While the quilt is made from scraps, the colors are coordinated around a theme of yellow and lavender. Notice how the “off” colors, like the reds, enliven the end results.

The quilt, created by Bonnie Hunter, has a lovely pieced border that sets it off beautifully. While instructions are not provided for the border, Bonnie tells us she used 2″ strips. That may be all experienced quilters need to know in order to replicate the design.

Instructions are available for the 9″ Jacob’s Ladder variation blocks, which are based on an antique 1940’s quilt. A scrap quilt made from these blocks, laid out like in the photo, will be lovely with or without the pieced border.

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!
