Diagonal quilt settings can be intimidating for beginning and time-challenged quilters alike. Diagonal sets look complicated, and adding edge (setting) triangles can be a bit tricky. So maybe you’re looking for a quilt pattern that appears to be a complicated diagonal setting, but is actually make with straight-set, simple blocks.
Look no further! The Lavender & Sage quilt designed by Tammy Silvers for the May/June 2015 issue of McCall’s Quilting is exactly that…a simple quilt with blocks set in straight rows which gives the illusion of a more complex diagonal design.
