This pattern will be available from your quilt shop in Nov/Dec 2012.


Strong vertical and horizontal lines are balanced by the curves and diagonal flow of this 65" x 72" quilt. Areas of the thematic print appear to float on top of multi-round frames. Strip sets are used to create the bar blocks that rotate throughout the design. Finally, easy machine appliqué is used to stitch the gentle curves of the quarter-round blocks. To add a final element of drama, both cream and black borders are placed at angles to create additional movement!


The layout is simple and there are no points to match anywhere! This is a great weekend quilt as it will move right along keeping you motivated all the way through. Consider outline quilting within the focal blocks to draw attention to your chosen motifs. Quilting along the curved edges of the appliqué blocks and free-form wavy lines through the blocks will add additional dimension to the diagonal focus.
