Swallow-Tailed Kite is a stylized, pictorial block with a design that is symmetrical to one diagonal. The block measures 18 inches square when finished and can be arranged in a variety of ways to form many different looking quilts. Swallow-Tailed Kite is simple enough for someone with only basic quilting skills to construct very easily, yet because of its versatility, it will challenge and intrigue the more experienced quilter with respect to layouts, color schemes and fabric selections.
This 4-page PDF pattern includes many colored diagrams, detailed instructions, layout approaches, fabric selection tips and a chart of pieces to cut for each block—everything you need to successfully create a beautiful quilt project with your own special touch.
When you purchase this pattern, you will also receive my free 5-page PDF tool for calculating yardage, shown in the last product image. This Yardage Calculator will not only guide you in determining your yardage requirements, but it will also guide you in cutting pieces for your quilt from strips. You can use this tool with any quilt pattern, not just with my designs.
