Sweet Tea Quilt Pattern

Download Free Pattern

Jinny Beyer’s signature border print fabric works overtime to give this quilt big impact.  This quilt is a modified version of the original High Tea pattern; in this version, the templates have been re-sized to make more efficient use of the border print fabric, especially for the double-bed size quilt.

The border print stripes are used three ways:  they are fussy cut to make the star points, cut into triangles to form the alternating and setting blocks, and used to frame the quilt with Jinny’s foolproof, no-math method of mitering corners.

Finishes 59¼” x 73½”.

We are sorry, Sweet Tea kits are no longer available.
