Trip into Taupe Quilt Pattern

$AUD 11.99

When the taupe craze started I saw all those yummy muted tones and wanted to make something.

I’m, however, incapable of making a quilt without a zing of colour so I’ve devised a way of using a lot of taupes and adding a zing of colour with a series of bold colour circles…



Taupe & Circles!
Sometimes colour speaks to me, OK, all of the time. This pattern can work with any colour you have a lot of in your stash. Long quarters, or fat quarters, you can put them together to make your panels and choose a complementary colour for the circles.

This pattern is an excellent stash buster.

Skill Level: New to Intermediate, rotary cutting, basic sewing skills, fusible web appliqué

Finished Size: 48 x 54 inches


Materials (provided by you):

  • Approx 1½ yds (1.5m) various fat quarters and long quarters of background colour (use a selection – I used 27 different taupes. You can use fewer but you want enough to make the background interesting.)
  • 4—8 fat quarters or pieces of contrasting fabric for circles. The largest circle is 8 inches diameter, the smallest is 2 ½ inches diameter.
  • 1 yd (1m) border fabric
  • 3 yds (3m) backing fabric
  • ½ yd (50 cm) binding fabric
  • 55 x 61 inch piece of batting
  • ¾ yd (75 cm) of paper backed fusible web

All patterns have been test quilted to ensure accuracy.
