No-Waste Flying Geese method, so it goes together quick and is so much fun to make!!!
I used Fat Quarters from Lella Botique's Farmer's Daugther fabric line for Moda. I love these color combinations together and how there is a mixture of high and low contrasting blocks. The low contrasting blocks gives your eye a place to rest and the high contrasting blocks just pop. Together they make for wonderful movement and flow ;) And I just love these colors all together, so pretty!!! And the quilt got it's name for Dutch Windmills and Dutch Tulips, because I can't decide what this quilt looks more like :) So Double Dutch just seemed to fit!!
When it came time to quilt, I decided to do an all over Feathered Swirl. I love adding fun curves in the quilting to compliment all of those pretty points and angles :) The feathered swirl is just so pretty and a perfect compliment to these gorgeous fabrics. And it is so much fun to quilt and adds great texture!!!
Double Dutch finishes at 84" square so it is just perfect to take out on a picnic or lay out with a good book :) And with the easy piecind and large block sizes, it really can come together fast!!! Just grab 16 Fat Quarters and a Background color and your ready for some fun!!
And that is Double Dutch!!! I hope you all love it as much as I do ;) And if you make your own Double Dutch Quilt, I would love to see it!!! The pattern can be found in Fat-Quarter Favorites (I have a few copies available in my Book Shop that I will be happy to sign, just FYI :) and you can email me a picture at email@example.com or add it to my flickr group here or post it to social media with #happyquiltingwithmc ;) I can't wait to see your Double Dutch Quilts!!!
And I will be back tomorrow with the Second Quilt from Fat-Quarter Favorites called Red Cross :)
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!
