As the year winds down and winter settles in, delve into your batik stash and make a wintry lap quilt! The free pattern download is for a 65½″ square lap quilt; the bed size version is photographed above. In our free lap quilt version, four large Star Blocks combine with a clever sashing, resulting in nine sparkling stars. Strip sets made with 4 width-of-fabric strips make quick work of the 16-patch blocks.
Would you make this Winter Galaxy quilt in batiks as shown, or would you try something different? I’m thinking it would also be fun in multiple colors instead of monochromatic. What colors do you envision?
