It’s Great in Any Color Palette!
Subtle coloring lends interest and elegance to this lovely quilt while giving it a bit of a time-worn look. While boldly colored quilts often have a stronger initial impact, those that are softly colored, like this one, tend to draw you in to enjoy the subtleties.
While we love the subdued coloring, bolder prints will be wonderful in this quilt too, as will any color theme. Play with fabrics to create your own special version.
Simple piecing and large areas of background make this a great candidate for showing off your quilting skills with a more intricate design. Or go with a simple overall quilting design such as the one used in the example.
The finished quilt, designed by Julie Porter from Farmhouse Cottons, is 56″ square. It will be easy to enlarge this quilt by adding more rows and columns of blocks.
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!
