The Ice Garden Lap Quilt Is Simple To Piece.
Wintry Ice Garden lap quilt is a terrific way to showcase favorite blue and white fabrics. Two variations of the classic Sawtooth Star Block twinkle and shine in this frosty tribute to the winter season.
Use this sparkling Double Sawtooth Star Block pattern to create your own version of the Ice Garden quilt. A fun double sawtooth block using two blues but with different color values create a sparkle effect. For the sashing, a swirling batik captures ice flurries. Showcase your favorite blue and white fabrics, or any color scheme you like.
Bring together prints and batiks, crystalline stars form quickly in this frosty winter beauty. Use combinations of blue or any colors you like. Large 12′ x 12″ blocks would be stunning in bold florals and a solid for spring, or autumn shades just the same.
Stitch up a couple of sawtooth quilt blocks using the free pattern available here. The Ice Garden lap quilt finishes at 60 1/2″ x 78 1/2″.
The full pattern is available from a back issue of McCalls Quilting Nov/Dec 2015 and is available for purchase for a small fee. Not to mention the other 8 beautiful quilt patterns in this issue.
