This quick country style quilt was meant to be included in Kim Diehls book ‘Homestyle Quilts Simple Patterns and Savory Recipes’. With only 96 pages to pack the collection of quilts, one quilt had to be removed. Lucky for us, this gorgeous quilt couldn’t be a part of the book and is being given as a free pattern. Included in the pattern download, is a table topper/candle mat to make with the left over fabric from the checkerboard quilt.
