Item details

Snowbirds is a contemporary quilt design to show off those large print fabrics. A project for all skill levels...

Using large prints is always a challenge. I am always attracted to them but they are more difficult to design with.

In my first sample quilt, I designed this pattern around a Kona Bay fabric of birds and flowers. To me, the subtle grey lines through the fabric look like a snow storm, hence the name. I was able to use large pieces of the feature fabric to highlight the birds then used coordinating fabrics to draw attention to some of the colors in the fabric.

This an easy pattern for a beginner or a more advanced quilter who may have that special piece of fabric that requires large blocks to show it off.

Why not give it a try?
