Due to the
overwhelming popularity of the Neutral Love collection the March 2013 catalog,
some of the most popular kits sold out quickly. In response to many customer
requests, three of the patterns are now available on the CT website for
A Work in Plaid
A Work in Plaid by Mari Martin, approximately 52-1/2” square, is perfect for
quilters who want an unusual quilt with a modern slant. The design’s simple piecing
is great for beginning quilters. Best of all, it is a free download!
Checkerboard & Stars, by Mari Martin, is a stunning king-size quilt,
approximately 100” square. Regardless of the collection you choose, this
interesting and unusual design will become a quilt to be treasured. This
amazing pattern is a CT exclusive download priced at $2.99.
Arbor Window, by Ann
Johnson, is another lovely king-size quilt, approximately 100-1/2” square. This quilt, with its easy-to-piece block and
27 fabrics, will look traditional or more modern depending on the collection
you select. Yes, the quilt is scrappy! No need to be intimidated by the number
of fabrics; Ann provides suggestions for some “planned randomness” if you don’t
want to throw the fabrics in a pile and pick. It’s up to you. Everyone’s quilt will
look different! This versatile pattern is a CT exclusive download priced at $2.99.
