There’s nothing better than an easy pattern that looks complicated. You just need to be able to sew a half-square triangle and cut strips to make the blocks for this quilt.
18 Carat is made with a 10-inch square pack and coordinating yardage. The pattern is named for the sparkling gemstone look created by grouping the layer cake squares into color groupings.
With instructions this easy, 18 Carat can be put together in a weekend for a quick project to be made as a gift, or to have something for your couch or twin bed. You can easily increase the size of this quilt by using two 10-inch square packs cakes and twice the yardage to make a queen-sized quilt from this pattern.
The pattern includes full color layout diagrams and instructions.
Quilt finishes 54″ x 72″ with instructions to make an 84″ x 90″ quilt.
