Red Light Green Light, an Easy Quilt Pattern

Monday April 14, 2014

Red Light Green Light QuiltLike other quilts, Red Light Green Light can be personalized in so many ways. I love florals, and can see it as a 'watercolor' style quilt, where the florals melt into each other. And batiks would be perfect, too. Simply change the fabrics to customize the pattern.

Elaine made the quilt for her grandson, and added a set of toy automobiles. The quilt's 'roads' are perfect pathways for the little cars. A portion of Elaine's quilt is shown here, and a corner is folded over to show a bit of the embroidery work she added to the backing.

The quilt finishes at about 59" x 79", and straight grain pieces of fabric help make it easy to assemble, since there are no stretchy bias edges.

Create an Easy Arbor Windows Quilt

Friday April 11, 2014

Quilt PatternsArbor Windows is a quilt that's sewn by alternating two different versions of the same patchwork quilt block within its 35-block layout. The quilt finishes at about 77" x 95" as shown, but it's easy to alter its dimensions by sewing more or fewer quilt blocks, or by adjusting either the width or number of borders.

At first glance, it appears as if the quilt includes quarter square triangle units, but it does not -- that patchwork is formed at block corners when blocks are sewn together.

Change the colors in any way you wish, because Arbor Windows will work with any theme.
