A Scrappy Quilt For All Year Round
This scrappy quilt will look great in your home year-round. Muted prints make this quilt look warm and inviting, and will fit into almost any decor.
This sweet quilt is simply made of a sixteen-patch surrounded by rectangles and matching four-patch units. It’s the perfect beginners quilt! A great play with muted colors, finishing into a snugly quilt to use, and delightful to display.
Low volume fabrics for the background are most effective when lots of different prints are mixed together. Choose any neutral for the background that will compliment your decor, and also one that will provide enough contrast for the blocks. Using more prints than solids will cause the pretty blocks to emerge.
The ‘Tranquil Waters’ quilt, designed by Krisanne Watkins, is perfectly fat quarter friendly, with thirty of the prettiest 8 inch blocks to make a finished quilt of 68″ x 78″.
