This Tile quilt makes a great throw for a bed or sofa. It takes advantage of some of the big design repeats in the Silk Road collection with just 20 patches making up the top of this 42" x 54" quilt. It is a design that lets the fabric "do the talking": three of the blocks are 18" square!
The kit includes nine prints from the Silk Road collection cut as Fat Quarters plus a 78cm panel of the fabulous dragon design (refer to 8306-11 for more details), a coordinating print for the binding plus instructions. Its quick and easy to make with just two inset (partial) seams, so suitable for any skill level from confident beginner.
The additional images show the Tile quilt design made up in the "River Dragon" colourway. Although not included as detailed instructions there are examples in the photographs of two cushions made using the remaining dragon print and offcuts from the other fabrics, pieced as strips.
At 42" wide, if you are careful you can back this with a single drop of a regular patchwork fabric that has a nominal width of 42"-44". In our example River Dragon quilt, pieced and quilted by Stuart Hillard, Stuart used a 108" wide quilt back called Circle Play (7593-2). A lighter alternative would be Circle Play (7593-3)
