Quilt Pattern – Winding Plumes

This was a very cool pattern that I wanted to try – fat quarters – big blocks – very quick and easy.  The pattern called for a border – to make it 58” x 75” – but I liked the look without the borders – so I eliminated them – that saved even more time!




Grandson #2 really liked the darker colors when I showed him the finished quilt.  I decided to use the pattern again – only next time I would make the twin size – and in Black – White – and Red.  I also decided that I would make FIVE of them – one for each kid.  There is something about the Black/White/Red combination that all teen-agers like.  That’s gonna be a fun project!

I really like this - simple but interesting at the same time. And, I agree, I don't think I'd have put a border on either - some quilts simply don't need them. I wonder how this would look scrappy? I have a bin of FQs that might find a way into something like this. Have a good Sunday!

Thanks, Kim! The pattern was included in a kit I bought from Connecting Threads - called "Big & Bold - Twilight Frost". It was a featured kit from their "Twilight Frost" collection and is no longer available. It was designed by Cozy Quilt designs - by Daniela Stout. If you "search" my blog for B/W/R - you should get a list of the posts with the red ones - ;))
