We'll start the parade of finished quilts off with this simple 16-Patch quilt made with fabrics from the Croquet collection by Denyse Schmidt.
I used this basic tutorial for the 16-patch blocks but modified it to make 12" finished blocks by cutting the strips 3.5" wide instead of 4". I bought 8 third yards and added in a 2 other DS prints from my stash to make 20 blocks. Quarter yards would have been perfect. You could get 2 blocks from each quarter yard with just a little left over fabric. It's okay, the extras were great for the backing.
I love the vintagey feel this quilt has. My pictures don't do it justice at all. The colors of this fabric collection are fun, retro and fresh feeling.
I fell in love with the 16-patch after seeing this one and this one. Both so pretty!
