About this Quilt


This large twin-size quilt gives you the chance to let your creativity fly by being a showcase for your favorite prints and colors. Because birds of a feather flock together, you’ll make matching sets of units for the blocks, but you can incorporate as many colors and prints as you choose.

The All A Twitter collection from Hoffman Fabrics is unique in that it consists of panels that are printed as fat quarter-sized sections of coordinating prints. Denise cut her matching squares from different sections of the same panel to get the wide variety of prints and colors shown in her quilt, though this design would work just as well with a scrappy approach, or with using precut fat quarters.

This pattern is also great for showcasing a statement border print, like Denise did. She cut the side borders lengthwise, then cut the top and bottom borders widthwise from the remaining fabric. If you choose a directional border print, the yardage requirement is the same, though you may want to add a miter on the third border for a professional finishing touch.
