Rattle Modern Quilt with Helen Butcher
Classes with Helen Butcher • Educational, G, 01-Jan-2019
Helen has used a delightful range of Oakshott fabrics they called 'Fruit Salad Selection' to create this very striking quilt. But the pattern is so adaptable that you could also make tablemats.
Since it is a modern improve quilt, you don't have to worry about seam allowance, so great for beginners. But Helen does give you some helpful sewing and pressing tips.
At the end all the blocks are squared up to be of equal size.
The free version of the pattern is available on the QGBI Modern Group’s website.
P.S. Michael at Oakshott says this pack can be available through us and we now have it loaded up into the shop.
