Carnival Quilt Pattern


Download Free Pattern

This stunning quilt was inspired by kaleidoscopes.

The construction is ingenious: instead of blocks, the quilter makes twelve triangular wedges composed of large pieces of fabric, stripes of border print fabric, and beautifully shaded strip-sets.

The quilt center is made entirely with straight seam sewing. Templates are used to fussy cut the patches, and the border has mitered corners.

Finishes 75½” x 84″.
