Farmhouse Patchwork Quilt

I'm gearing up for heading to Atlanta on Friday for the Stash Bash, so I haven't been doing a ton of sewing this week, but I do have another finish to share today! Back in January, I worked up a quilt for Quilt Magazine, and it's featured in their June/July issue, on stands now. Say hello to Farmhouse Patchwork!

This quilt pattern, also called Farmhouse Patchwork, is a super easy, scrappy quilt that you can easily put together in a weekend. The small patchwork squares are all pieced using simple, speedy strip-piecing, so this quilt blocks come together quite quickly and easily.

I used the new Charleston Farmhouse fabric collection by Felicity Miller for this quilt, mixed with a few Free Spirit Designer Solids. I just love the shade of coral in this collection, it's a gorgeous color that's sometimes hard to find in quality quilting cottons, and the Plumberry print, available in several colors, is a great stash print. You can find Charleston Farmhouse in stock at Pink Castle Fabrics.

So, head on out and pick up a copy of the new issue of Quilt magazine! I found my copy at my local grocery store, but I've also seen Quilt on stands on Barnes & Noble and Jo-Ann's. Have a great day!
