Turn the Corner Quilt

 Today I'm showing the Turn the Corner quilt. This couch cuddler sized quilt is quick to stitch and has a terrific eye catching look that co-ordinates well with nearly any decor.  The pattern for this quilt is in the new Winter 2019 issue of Easy Quilts magazine.

 Island Batik provided the incredibly gorgeous blue and white fabrics for this quilt.  These fabrics belong to the London Calling collection.
 The Turn the corner quilt is made up of two blocks.  This one with darker fabric values...

 And this one with a much lighter, brighter look.

 The two blocks play beautifully together.

 I used the The Warm Company's Warm and Natural batting ~ my very favorite all cotton batt.
I quilted a simple loopy meander in an all over fashion.

 This quilt looks great in the sunshine over a wicker bench on my front porch.

 In this photo you can see a close up look of the simple loopy quilting.  Easy quilt = easy quilting.

 A look at the backing ~ I think this fabric is called Universe?

 The binding is made with the same blue dragonfly fabric as the outer border.

Finished Quilt Size:  59" x 59"

  1. Your Turn The Corner quilt is gorgeous. Blue quilts tend to be stunning especially if you use Island Batik fabrics. I like that you used the same fabric from the final border for the binding.

    1. Thank you Robin. I seem to use a lot of blues in my quilts, and Island Batik has the most color saturated fabrics. I love the glow they add to any project! I try to match my binding to my outer border whenever possible. I really like that look.

      Have a marvelous day!
