This red and white quilt was inspired by my visit to teach sashiko (Japanese quilting) on the Danish island Fanoe in September 2009. The centre of each block is based on the unusual cottage door windows in Sonderho village and the surrounding triangles and block arrangement are reminiscent of the antique Dutch tiles brought back to the island as ships’ ballast, set on point for a lively design. The red and white scheme was inspired by the Danish and English flags, but it would work well with any strong contrast, including blue and white, checks, stripes and polka dots.
It uses eight fat quarters of white on red prints and nine fat quarters of red on white, plus extra fabric for the setting triangles and borders.
The finished quilt is approximately 76in (193cm) square.
You will need:
The pattern includes full colour step-by-step photos for making the blocks, plus assembly diagrams for the quilt top. Quilting and binding instructions are not included - the sample quilt was longarm quilted with a pantograph pattern, but the quilt may be completed with whatever quilting design and binding method you like best.
Skill level - Intermediate. This quilt design includes setting triangles and working with bias cut edges. The quilt may be sewn by hand or machine.
Written permission is required to copy any part of this pattern or to use it for teaching. Purchase of the pattern entitles you to make any number of quilts for your own use or gifts, and up to ten quilts for sale. It is not intended for commercial production.
