Homefront Snuggler ePattern

This fun modern quilt pattern showcases quilter’s fat quarters (fabric pre-cut to 18″ x 22″) and recycled military uniforms set on a light background fabric. The quilt design is excellent for featuring fabrics, in this case military uniforms. Of course, yardage requirements are given for the uniform fabric, in case you want to make the quilt with a different featured center fabric instead. The binding is also scrappy, made from the fat quarter pieces.

McCall’s Quick Quilts featured this quilt (baby size) in the Feb/Mar 2011 issue. The blocks are very quick and simple to construct. The pattern offers two sizes: Baby: 45″ x 45″ Bed Size: 90″ x 90″

Free Shipping!

Of course, yardage requirements for using a uniform, or using traditional fabric in its place, are provided. (More pics coming soon!)
