Play with Color, Value and Placement to Create Your Own Stunning Version!

This wonderful quilt is a replica of a 200 year old quilt seen in a museum. Today’s fabrics give it a modern, updated look while retaining it’s old-world charm.

The intriguing design of the quilt depends entirely on fabric selection. Make sure to have extra fabric on hand so you can play with color and value placement to achieve the look you’re going for. Give your version a colorful scrappy look or coordinate the colors around a specific color scheme.

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!
