This quilt is one of my favorites. It combines bright colors, simplicity and structure perfectly for my taste.
Although I made this one using traditional primary colors it could easily be made using any fabrics you like.
I would love to make one with big blocks of Kaffe Fassett or Amy Butler fabrics!
The construction of this quilt is simple too and the top sews up quickly, so cut your fabric pieces and let’s get started.
Shortcut: I didn’t want to have to stop every little while to sew black strips together so I cut the black into a bunch of 2.5″ strips and then sewed them into one long strip. Then I would sew black strip onto the block and cut it off when I got to the end. No measuring!
I broke the blocks up into 3 main blocks.
Sew the blocks together as shown.
Sew on the black boarder.
Make your quilt sandwich, I used white for my backing.
For the quilting, I recommend a simple meandering. I think it does something to soften the hard square edges a little.
I bound mine with black.
I can’t wait to see yours!
*Please note in the comments that some of the measurements are wrong. I haven’t been able to fix them.
