Or, Make This Up In Any Favorite Color for an Equally Lovely Quilt!

Red and white quilts have long been among the most popular quilt designs for quilt makers. The color contrast is striking so just about any quilt pattern produces a stunning quilt.

This variation uses soft reds mixed with tans for a more subdued effect. The end result is a beautiful and timeless traditional quilt with a modern twist.

Bordeaux Quilt Pattern

The pattern, by Rachel Griffith for It’s Sew Emma, uses a classic Bear Paw block edged with elegant chains. It’s all straight piecing, so it’s easy to stitch together.

If red isn’t your thing, just about any color mixed with tan and white will be lovely made up in this quilt pattern. Or, go modern and use a combination of vivid prints. You could also give it a more scrappy look. Make each Bear Paw block in a different predominant color and tie it all together with the chain edging and border.

The finished quilt is 67″ x 67″.
