Carolyn Friedlander : Alturas Quilt Pattern
Named after a nearby town, Alturas features a retro-tile-inspired design that is fun to make in a variety of different fabrics and colors. The design also offers up a great opportunity to explore using a large-scale print as the appliqué that can be cut up and sewn into the project, allowing for both the print and sewn designs to shine.
Additionally, the small block size makes for an addictive and portable project that works well with both yardage and precuts!
