Friday Free Quilt Pattern: Waterfall | McCall’s Quilting Blog

This week’s Friday FREEbie was selected by editor Mary Kate Karr-Petras for the I Love This Quilt page of the September/October 2016 issue of McCall’s Quilting, in large part due to it being one of our most popular jelly roll quilt patterns. Waterfall was designed by Diana McClun and Laura Nownes, authors of the classic book Quilts! Quilts!! Quilts!!! Let’s take a look at this intriguing free lap quilt pattern:

You’ll need a total of 20 light and 20 dark 2 1/2″ fabric strips to make the chevrons for this quilt. Add fabrics for sashing, borders, and binding and you’re ready to finish your quilt.
