Desert Dreaming Quilt Pattern

$AUD 11.99

This pattern began, as it often does, by falling for a fabric range. I saw the Australian fabric Terra Australis by Ella Blue and it immediately spoke to me of triangles!

Once I got started, I thought of so many ways I could use this pattern, it got me very excited. Desert Dreaming is a contemporary quilt design allowing the modern Quilter to express themselves through colour….

In the original quilt, I used the Terra Australis range with a light grey Essex Linen to provide a bit of texture. In the alternate quilt I went for a stark white solid to offset the florals. I can also see this pattern working by using one or two colours from your stash.

To make this pattern easy to cut, I recommend using an equilateral triangle ruler. This allows you to rotary cut the triangles. If you don’t have access to the triangle ruler, I have included templates for the triangles in the pattern.

This is a fun pattern to play around with. Pull out the stash and have a go!

Use fat quarters if you wish to use more than 8 different prints. My alternate colorway quilt uses 12 fat quarters
