Pattern Description:

When I started making modern quilts, I got a lot of questions and comments on how I made them so I wrote this quilt pattern a few years ago and offered it for free on my blog.

I love improvising my quilts but many quilters like a pattern, so this is pattern looks like it was an improvisational quilt and could be a good starter quilt for a beginner or beginner-intermediate. It's easy yet you will learn all the basic skills for making a quilt.
