Edge-to-Edge Ideas

Find a couple different edge-to-edge approaches available on for this simple quilt.

Loose Grid Meander is a design that will bring focus to the blocky shapes in the quilt’s arrangement.

The next design, Sketched Edge-to-Edge Design 2, offers the opposite approach with the juxtaposition of soft free-motion style feathers and swirls laid over the simple square shapes.

Block Ideas

The large white framed blocks are the perfect area to showcase your favorite block design. Find coordinating sets, like the Basic Blocks Vol 1- Set of 13 Designs, to feature a different fun block in each space, while still creating a cohesive look on the quilt.

Custom Ideas

Let Quiltable help with the custom quilting concept for this Sassy Pinwheels project.

This digital mock-up features designs from the Cocktail Umbrellas 7-piece Set.

The set comes with blocks, borders, corners and edge-to-edge designs. Since this pattern has a pinwheel design in the sashing area, we’ve treated it like its own block. The custom concept features a more detailed block in the white space and a simpler block in the pinwheel.

A cool element to point out is the use of the melon block, shown in green. It is shaped like a football. The design extends into the adjacent space, tying the quilt together.
