Cafe Paris Quilt Kit

Café Paris is our feature du jour in McCall’s Quick Quilts June/July 2013 issue! This is my lovely little quilt designed for 10” square precuts, and I chose Paris Flea Market to feature it in, since all the light creams, yellow, greens and blues blend nicely together, with a pop of red here and there.



Believe it or not, this is an easy one-block design that results in scrappy pinwheels and a pieced sashing with an offset appearance. To leave the focus on the intricate looking blocks, I left it borderless.



Natalia Bonner quilted this with a simple swirl allover, which lends to the meandering feel of the blocks.

I love Café Paris and hope you will too! You can find kits at Fat Quarter Shop to add a little Paris to your home!

and the pictured quilt is cute too. I just bought this magazine & luckily it was still in the sack so it didn't get rained on last night like the QuiltMaker magazine! note to self: don't leave the magazines on the chair outside on the porch!
