Finished Quilt:  36" x 68"

Do you have a big bold fabric that you would like to feature in a quilt?  Here is a pattern for you!

This is a lovely quilt that is suitable for a toddler or lap.   It was designed for this beautiful piece of Koi fabric from my stash.  The print stands out, but is also toned down.  It's a simple modern design with wonderful movement of pattern and colour.   Staying in a range of blue cool tones accentuates the main fabric and gives it a watery feel. 


Feature Print:   

Cut 1 - Width of Fabric (WOF) x 24"

Accent Fabrics:  

Cut 2 - 24" x 6 1/2"
Cut 2 - 24" x 4"  

Setting Strips:   

Cut 16 - 2 1/2"  WOF strips.  


Sew the accent fabrics to the short edges of the feature fabric as shown in these photos.   

  Press to one side. 

 Cross cut your pieced fabric into 6 - 4" strips.  

Number the pieces as above.  
They need to be kept in order to feature your main fabric design.

 Using 14 of your setting strips,  sew together end-to-end into pairs to make 7 long strips. 

(Optional:  Use Connecting Threads Wide Backing Fabric as I did. 
 You will need 8 WOF 2 1/2" setting strips in total and no piecing is required at this point.)

 Sew your pieced 4" strips and your setting 2 1/2" strips long edge to long edge.  
Do this with all 6 of your pieced 4" strips. 

 Trim the excess.

 Add the 7th setting strip to the remaining edge.  

 Sew the remainder of your quilt together keeping the numbered order. 

 Add a 2 1/2" setting strip to the top and bottom.

A nice set of pillowcases to match. 



  1. This is such a perfect arrangement! I'm going to have to use it for a certain print I have. Thank you!

  2. Hmmm, interesting. Might give this a try. Thank you.

  3. I have several prints that I don't want to cut into little pieces this design will suit them very well.
