2909: Rainbow Mosaic – Fons & Porter

Episode 2909 Description and Preview

An unusual take on charm quilts, this design by Nancy Mahoney combines multiple charm shapes in a medallion-style quilt that uses batiks. Using templates to make things easier, Nancy and host Sara Gallegos walk you through different methods for dealing with these unusual shapes. Hexagons, diamonds, triangles—with the right tools and techniques, you can master them all! Quilt made by Nancy Mahoney. Quilted by Terri Taylor.

Featured Quilt: Rainbow Mosaic

Marianne Fons created this lovely quilt for the opening exhibit at the Iowa Quilt Museum in Winterset, Iowa. We supply full-sized templates and our Sew Easy instructions for cutting half-square and quarter-square triangles. Red and white are quilt colors have been favorites for traditional quilters for centuries and this red and white quilt pattern pays homage to that. While you can use any colors or fabrics that you choose, consider making this quilt in the red and white shown below (you can even purchase a quilt kit to use them same fabrics we did!) to continue the tradition.

Red Between the Lines was designed by Nancy Mahoney. This quilt was featured in the Love of Quilting January/February 2017 issue.
