A favorite block of mine since I began quilting in the late 90's, I had made a queen size using this block for a wedding gift, but the blocks were too small and cumbersome for a "Novice Quilters Aged 12 and Up" pattern. This spring I sat down with a calculator and created a 13" block that goes together much easier and frames a queen sized bed perfectly.
Once again, I chose a palette of Kaffe Fassett fabrics separating them into light, medium and darks. I also like the Kaffe collection because there's so much depth and variety to it. I like big and small prints and some stripes in there too because it gives so much interest to the final quilt.
Enjoy. Lori Allison
