Jackie Robinson’s festive throw quilt pattern is truly captivating. It starts with a lovely set of fabrics featuring birds and holly berries set against an elegant cream print with gold flecks. She then creates two ingenious quilt blocks that highlight the birds and create a freestanding chain. With a little fussy cutting, the Log Cabin quilt blocks and the freestanding patchwork chain in this design create perfect opportunities to frame your fabrics. The mitered borders are the ideal way to handle distinctly patterned fabric. A lovely seasonal throw quilt!
