Woven Lightning Quilt

Woven Lightning by Kristine Lundblad

About this Quilt

Finished Blocks : 42" x 54"

Rating : Intermediate

Designed By : Kristine Lundblad

Two complementary colors, when placed side by side, can vibrate, and that is just what happens in Kristine Lundblad’s stunning quilt.

Inspired by the woven piecing techniques she learned by reading m Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s book Modern Quilt Magic, Kristine took her design to a new level. She chose to create strip sets of contrasting colors in a variety of values to create a streak of lightning across this quilt.

This pattern also includes a bonus section on how to create a pieced binding to carry your colorful design all the way to the edge of a bound quilt. Ingenious!

We love how “Woven Lightning” shimmers and shines, like lightning striking over the water on a hot summer day.
