Hot property in the Caribbean comes in the form of colourful cabins and cabanas and the odd rustic church, all set under a storybook sun. In this quilt pattern Crystal McGann set the islands' streets in stitches. This quilt pattern is designed to be pieced improvisationally and no two blocks, based on the Flying Geese block and New York Beauty block, should be the same. Crystal recommends cutting the House blocks as you go for more flexibility with their shape and size.
