Forest Curve

Alissa Haight Carlton Stash Books ePub

76″ × 80″

This quilt will fit a full bed—or a twin bed with a lot of overhang. A quilt this big is always great to have around the living room to wrap up in while watching a movie.

The most basic of designs, this pattern simply involves sewing together long vertical strips in varying widths. The gradual decrease in size of the dark green strips creates the illusion of a curve.

Based on 42″ fabric width.

Fabric A (dark green): 3¾ yards

Fabric B (light green): 1 yards

Fabric C (optional yellow print): 21½″ × 10½″

Backing: 5 yards

Binding: yard

Please be sure to read Notes on Making the Quilts in This Book (page 6). Label the pieces as you cut.

If you find it easier, don’t trim your strips to 80″. You can piece the entire quilt top using the extra- long strips, and then trim the top to 80″.

Fabric A (dark green)

1. Cut 2 strips 21½″ × WOF (selvage to selvage) and sew end to end; trim A1.

2. Cut 2 strips 16½″ × WOF and sew end to end; trim A2.

3. Cut 2 strips 10½″ × WOF and sew end to end; trim A3.

This queen-size quilt is the main feature to a bedroom. It might be big, but it goes together quickly with just one large portion of improv piecing playing the starring role.

Based on 42″ fabric width.

Fabric A (green): 5½ yards

Backing: 7¼ yards

Binding: 1 yard

Please be sure to read Notes on Makinq the Quilts in This Book (page 6). Label the pieces as you cut.

City Aviation

Cherri House Stash Books ePub

Take a city tour through twelve textile interpretations using solid fabrics, and explore the many possibilities that can be achieved through this painterly fabric medium. All of the quilt projects that follow are inspired by views in and around the city. These quilts are simple geometric designs cut from strips into squares and rectangles. Basic quiltmaking instructions and information about tools and materials can be found in Cherri’s Basics (pages 57, 73, and 83), as well as in Quiltmaking Essentials (page 103).

Note: Specific Robert Kaufman fabric colors are noted only when vital to the overall effect of the quilt.

Each day, as thousands of commuters—myself included—drive in the early morning darkness into downtown Houston, the buildings, lit from within, are a welcome greeting.

In this quilt the blocks—black, alternating with mainly pastels—are the lighted windows of the building. I’ve used color to create windows where some lights are out and where some are dimmed. Place the medium pastels and the charcoals randomly throughout the black units to give depth and variety to your office building.

FINISHED BLOCK: 12″ × 6″

Too Flat

I love the architecture in Chicago. Whether it’s residential or commer-I cial, it appeals to my eye. I am frequently inspired by architecture for patterns, and this one is no exception.

I have always wanted to live in a loft in downtown Chicago. I love the idea of escaping the frenetic energy of the streets in a cool, industrial-feeling apartment that overlooks our beautiful city. This is the type of quilt that would fit in perfectly with my idea of the perfect interior of such a home.

The following yardage makes a throw-sized quilt. Refer to the LOFT chart (page 27) for alternate sizes and yardage requirements.

10 rectangles 2″ × 6½″ (Unit C)
