It may be summer now, but winter isn’t *too many turns of the calendar away…as the year begins to wind down and we watch winter settle in, seize the freeze, slash your stash, and make a wintry lap quilt!
This week’s Friday FREE pattern download is for a 65½″ square lap quilt version of Winter Galaxy (the image to the right is of a bed size version). In this free project, four large Star Blocks combine with a clever sashing to create nine sparkling stars. Strip sets made with 4 width-of-fabric strips also make quick work of the 16-patch blocks.
Not *quite feeling like giving in to the call of cooler weather? While the Winter Galaxy quilt *does look great in icy batiks, you could always consider something different: multiple colors instead of monochromatic, or a different color palette altogether. What do you think?
