Skill Level:

Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

A simple quilt block design using modern fabrics, and is suitable for all levels of quilters and sewers - if you can sew a straight line then this is the pattern for you! It does require experience in rotary cutting. It is almost entirely stripped pieced.

The fabrics used are a variety of Kaffe Fassett fabrics, giving the quilt a bright, colourful, modern and fresh look. However, the pattern is equally suited to any style of fabric from reproduction to 1930's to romantic florals. It is also a good alternative for an 'I Spy' quilt.

It is fat quarter friendly, requiring 20 fat quarters of coloured fabrics.

The pattern is for a quilt sized 63" x 77" (157.5cm x 192.5cm). However, this could be easily adjusted by simply adding or subtracting blocks.

The written pattern has been tested by a beginner quilted to ensure ease of understanding of the instructions. Photographs are provided for ALL steps of the construction process to give clear and precise information on all sewing steps. The usual line diagrams have NOT been used at all. Handy hints and tips which will assist in the successful completion of this quilt have been added throughout the pattern.

All fabric requirements
