This pattern is a variation on the mini quilt that I made for the Kona Color of the Year exhibit. I would have loved to make the pattern exactly like the mini, but it would have involved a lot of tedious piecing and you would have hated me. Hopefully this has the same feel without all of the tiny pieces. You can see the on point baby version of the quilt that I made previously here.
The pattern is not difficult and it involves some strip piecing so it comes together without too many little pieces. I would say it is good for an experienced beginner who wants to try something new, but also fun for more experienced quilters. I did put together a few links to tutorials that might be helpful for beginners and you can find those down at the end of this post.
I am going to introduce each of the sizes with the quilts made by my wonderful pattern testers. Since this is going to be a long post, I will save my gushing about how thrilling it was to see each of these completed quilts but my pattern testers were wonderful and amazing and fantastic and I am extremely grateful for all of their help.
