Shattered, Improvisational Modern Quilt Pattern (BAB -14)
This contemporary improvisational quilt is fun to piece and once you get the process, it goes very fast. The blocks in this quilt are made from only one strip size (OSS). The cutting is super easy! You might notice that our sample pictures show the quilt rotated. You decide which way is up.
There are 5 columns in this quilt. Each of the columns has 10 blocks. Thus, the quilt has 50 blocks. You make one column at a time. You can have lots of fun selecting colors for your columns (use 5 different fabrics per column) or you can make each column from one fabric. The background color stays the same in each column.
After you finish the columns, you add one border and the quilt is finished! (You can omit the border if you like)
We show you three color variations. In the quilt on the front of the pattern, we used a dark grey for the block background color and for the border and binding. In our second quilt, we replace the grey background with white. The interest colors stay the same. In the third quilt we used a white background in the blocks and a grey for the border and binding.
The quilt finishes 57" wide by 80" long.
The project pack includes the pattern and a pack of 2.25" Thangles.
