Carpenter’s Square Quilt – Fons & Porter

About this Quilt

If you like traditional quilts and quilt patterns, you’ve come to the right place! Carpenter’s Square is just that — a lovely traditional pattern with a great color scheme. Carpenter’s Square quilts have historically been made in two colors, and Liz Porter followed suit. Her choice in color has a bit of an updated flair, however, accommodating the on-trend choices of today’s contemporary homes and décor. Of course, you will choose the colors that speak to you, but orange and blue are always fun! Enjoy this oversized, traditional throw quilt pattern with a modern twist. We certainly do!
