Postcard Quilt from Valerie Nesbitt
Classes with Valerie Nesbitt • Educational, G, 01-May-2017
As you can see this pattern is extremely versatile, and Valerie shows several different examples as inspiration.
Initially the quilt was created using pre-cut charm squares plus yardage, and then Valerie raided her stash for some feature fabric and contrasting colours. The final quilt was created using feature fabric, and the main squares adjusted in size to make the most of the design.
This is a great quilt for beginners as the seam allowance can be anything you like!
