Have you seen the Stonehenge Fabrics? They are beautiful, full of color and texture.
Elisa Wilson of Elisa’s Backporch Design paired the medallion style pre-printed panel available in the Stonehenge fabric line with a border of blocks to simulate a garden walk of tiles in her French Garden quilt pattern. The quilt finishes at 49″ x 67″; large enough for a snuggle-on-the-couch lap quilt. It would also look great as a wall hanging.
The French Garden is also available as a quilt kit. The kit includes the pattern, all the fabric for the top and for the binding.
Stonehenge Stucco wide backing (108″) will make finishing a breeze. And, if you are careful, you can back two quilts with just 2 yards of the backing fabric.
Another option for the center is the Stonehenge Brown Panel.
Or use the same pattern and go for a regal look with the Imperial Collection 8 panel. Beautiful varied blues on an indigo background are enhanced with silver metallic thread throughout. There are several coordinating blues in the Imperial Collection that will work well for the borders.
If you’ve never made a panel quilt before this pattern is a great one to try.
