Oases quilt

About this Quilt

quilt-oases-flatCool blues and greens look so inviting and peaceful in Heidi’s appealing quilt, which can be a large throw quilt or a smaller twin-size quilt. The blocks are all made with the same size patches, the difference between them is all in the color placement. Study the quilt photos and pattern diagrams and note that the only difference between Blocks W and X is the placement of the light green and dark green patches. Similarly, the difference between Blocks Y and Z is the placement of the light blue and dark blue patches.

What makes this pattern intermediate as opposed to easy is the thin white patches that finish at just ½˝ wide. It’s a nice variation on the log cabin block, using a combination of thicker dark strips and thinner white strips to create the illusion of curves in the blocks. It’s important to sew the patches together with a consistent, accurate ¼˝ seam allowance so that the blocks fit together nicely.
