It’s the first of the month, and that means it’s time for the next installment of the Sunset Isle quilt pattern! Last month was all about the square in a square blocks, and watching your quilts grow the Sunset Isle Facebook group and on Instagram on #sunsetislequilt (see below) is just so much fun!
This month is the halfway mark! It’s also sharing the design with row 7 to create a symmetrical centre to our Sunset Isle quilts. These two rows are all about angles, with a mixture of flying geese and angled piecing. Here’s a reminder of what the full quilt design looks like:
If you’re working on a rainbow version, this month is your aqua row, and the next row (the same design but “upside down”) is teal. So when you’re pulling fabrics, use the lighter prints for this row, and the darker prints in the next one.
There are two block designs for this row, and you might like to choose one print per block like I have.
As next month’s pattern is a repeat of this month’s (in fact, sew ahead if you like!), Sunset Isle subscribers will be receiving a bonus baby quilt version that uses the first 6 months of blocks to create an adapted mini version. Please note – only the current subscribers will receive the bonus pattern, so you will need to sign up before July 1st to get the baby Sunset Isle quilt pattern.
