Taking fabric inspiration from Japanese summer kimonos known as yukatas, Jill Grant has been inspired by the deep indigo and crisp white to create her Zen And The Art Of Indigo Quilt pattern. This modern take on a simple block shape looks very striking with its monochrome colour scheme and provides the perfect opportunity to showcase those indigo Japanese fabrics without cutting them too small. It's a great quilt pattern for a beginner quilter.
Full materials list included in instructions
Lots of clear instructions and the quilt layout diagram will help with how best to piece the quilt together
Includes Jill's tips on sizing, trimming and fabric
Take inspiration from the original and create your quilt in indigo Japanese-style fabrics or try something a bit different and feature other fabric styles - it would work well to make a feature of large-print modern fabrics
Detailed step-by-step instructions, colour photographs and clear diagrams take you through all the steps from cutting your fabrics through to finishing your quilt
Jill's quilt was machine quilted with an edge-to-edge design, but it would look great with custom quilting or hand quilting with Japanese-style patterns
A great pattern for beginner quilters looking for a simple patchwork design, or if you're after a quilt pattern which doesn't require cutting your fabrics too small
