Snowbirds Quilt Pattern now available

A new quilt design has hit the Quilting Fabrications website!

I designed Snowbirds for the large scale print that we fall in love with in the shops, then wonder what we are going to do with it. Often, we end up using that gorgeous fabric on the back of a quilt where nobody sees it. Do I hear nods of agreement?

In this design, you can cut significant pieces of the feature fabric, to preserve all that loveliness that you fell for in the first place.

 Here are some tips when choosing your feature fabric:

  • As I mentioned, choose a largish design to enhance the block. If you choose a tiny print it will be lost amongst the strong colors that surround it.
  • Choose a feature fabric that has many different colors (at least 4 or more)

 

These are some examples, from my stash that would also work well:

You will need a background color and two highlight colors. If you are not sure how many colors are in a fabric, check the fabric selvedge (selvage) for colors:
