Featured Quilt: Folk Dance

Folk Dance QuiltBig block quilt patterns often make for quick quilts, although Folk Dance is rated challenging, so you’ll want to pay close attention to the process. Some of our favorite quilts are antique quilts made modern with updated contemporary fabrics and colors. This bed-size quilt pattern is no exception! Take a closer look at this one and see what you think.

Folk Dance was designed and constructed by Diane Tomlinson and quilted by Penny Barnes. This quilt is featured in the Love of Quilting January/February 2017 issue.
