Sweet & Breezy Quilt – Fons & Porter

About this Quilt

This cheerful design is an update of the classic Ruby’s Weathervane quilt block, made up in a combination of solids and prints. It uses fat quarters and 10″ squares in assorted 1930s reproduction prints. Our kit provides all the fabrics you need, and our instructions for triangle-squares help you whip those up with precision. Consider quilting it with floral and fleur-de-lis patterns and a Baptist Fan design in the border.
