Desert Charm Quilt Pattern available NOW!
May 21, 2020
This pattern has been a long time coming. I started working on it back in January! I took an idea for a quilt block with a sawtooth star and tweaked it bit by bit until it became the Desert Charm block. As impatient as I have felt to get this one out into the world, I'm glad I took the time to make it perfect. And I'm so excited to share it with you now.
Just for kicks, I should do a side by side of that first draft and the final version. They look absolutely nothing alike!
The Desert Charm quilt pattern is a modern quit wiith a classic look. Each block is made up of half square triangles, flying geese, hourglass squares, and snowballed corners making it a great skill builder. I've rated the skill level as advanced beginner. A beginner could definitely tackle this quilt, but it is helpful to have a quilt or two under your belt.
Pattern Details:- Two design options: Modern Solids and Scrappy Charms. Modern Solids uses the same fabric for each component of the block while the Scrappy Charms uses a mix and match method to add visual interest. - FQ Friendly (sort of)! While the Scrappy Charms version calls for 1/3 yard cuts, I give instructions and a cutting diagram to modify the pattern if you want to use FQ instead. - Three sizes: both design options can be made in baby (40"x40"), throw (60"x80"), and bed (80"x100") sizes.
About the cover quilt: The cover quilt is the Scrappy Charms version using 12 different Kona Cotton colors (Plum, Floxglove, Primrose, Amethyst, Lilac, Corsage, Candy Blue, Bluebell, Denim, Petal, Baby Pink, Peony)
I loved working with this color palette. I'm really loving muted colors right now. I'm obsessed with Kona Foxglove and want to find a way to include it in more quilts.
