Traverse Block of the Month

Traverse Block of the Month quilt


Designed by Tara Faughnan, the Traverse quilt is a modern take on a row-by-row block of the month quilt.

During this 12-month BOM, you'll get to use a range of techniques to build the rows. This is a great program to build your piecing skills if you're a novice, and a fun quilt to play with for the experts.

Techniques include strip piecing, curves, and a new way to paper piece!

While the quilt may look like it's made in all solids, it's actually made in wonderfully-soft Windham Fabrics cross weaves called Artisan Cotton. The colors have so much depth and personality in real life, the internet just can't do it justice.

Finished size: 72" x 85"
