Fancy Transparencies Quilt

Fancy Transparencies by Rebecca Severt

About this Quilt

Finished Size : 50" x 60"

Rating : Intermediate

Designed By : Rebecca Severt

Pale and sophisticated, yet bold and modern… this quilt combines fresh prints and a simple traditional shape to create a transparency effect based on the Gentleman’s Fancy block. For interest, the blocks and setting pieces are sewn in diagonal rows making the construction a breeze. Try your hand at big stitch hand quilting, experiment with free-motion machine stitching – or combine both – for an eye-catching finish!
