Inspired by a 1954 wallpaper designed by Lucienne Day, this quilt echoes the grid of the piecing pattern for an impact that’s more than the sum of its square parts. Strip cutting, chain piecing, and stitch-in-the-ditch quilting mean it won’t be long before you’re snuggling up under your own cozy quilt.
All fabrics are 45" wide quilting cotton unless otherwise noted.
