Flashback Friday: Tradewinds Quilt


Sometimes substituting for solids makes all the difference! Chef Michelle Law’s Tradewinds and Stars Quilt provided the inspiration for today’s Flashback Friday project.

Michelle’s original quilt was bright and cheerful – the perfect way to showcase a favorite charm pack or layer cake!

To make it modern, simply substitute the ingredients listed in the original recipe for:

1 white charm pack {Bella Solids 9900PP 98}
1 color charm pack {Bella Solids 9900PP 48}
1/4 yard for light star points {Bella Solids 9900 98}
1/4 yard for light star points {Bella Solids 9900 48}
1.5 yards border and binding fabric (Bella Solids 9900 48}

You will change up the look of the quilt simply by making half of the blocks with white centers and half with blue centers.
