As I posted on Instagram and sent out newsletter, MILKY WAY pattern has released last weekend!
My inspiration for this pattern was beautiful milky way in the night sky. I thought it would be fun to make this pattern with a lot of colors. These colors really pop with the dark background!
Skill level for this pattern is advanced beginner and it’s FQ and 1/4 yard friendly. This pattern is more traditional look than I usually make. But I added modern spin into it.
It might look a little complicated to arrange the colors but all you need is selecting the fabrics or colors according to fabric requirements, cut and mixed them up! You don’t need to think what you are going to use for each block. Just pick what you love and you are ready to go!
I used Kona Cotton Solid from Robert Kaufman Fabrics for the cover quilt and the colors I used for this one are…
Pickle, Lemon, Caramel, Salmon, Dusty peach, Ash, Fog, Aloha, Lingerie, Oasis, Bahama blue and Sky. The outline for the star is Kona white.
For the background, I used THATCHED by Robin Pickens for MODA. It’s very beautiful navy!
The block finishes at 16″x 16″. It’s large block and you can have a lot of fun with it! There is no complication of sewing the block but it might be tricky for some of you to sew three-piece triangle square. I shared easy way to trim in previous post. —> click here THREE-PIECE TRIANGLE SQUARE I hope it will be helpful for you.
This pattern includes four sizes. Small throw 48″x 64″, large throw (16 blocks) 64″x 64″, large throw (20 blocks) 64″x 80″ and bed size 96″x 96″. The quilt on the cover shows small throw.
And it also includes two versions.
This is scrap background version which is another way to enjoy this pattern. This version is also FQ and 1/4 yard friendly.
