This week we have plucked some new produce from Gregory’s Garden! In Patchwork Sassaman Style I listed some principles for using “personality” prints and this graphic quilt exemplifies several of them:
Keep it simple!
The bigger the print, the bigger the block.
Use simple fabrics as supporting players.
Contrast creates drama!
Symmetrical fabrics yearn to be fussy cut.
One print can be used in several colors.
Let the fabric do the work!
As you can see this is a very easy quilt to construct, it’s the fabric that make it look sophisticated! In fact, this would be a very good quilt for beginners to learn the basics of sewing and quilt making. And it is large enough to be used as a family lap blanket. Feel free to print out the pattern and FreeSpirit fabric yardage, which is shown below.
