This quilt pattern is inspired by traditional pojagi (Korean patchwork), but the bold colours and randomly placed shapes also give the feel of a modern quilt.
Each block is unique as the pieces are placed randomly, but construction uses a “no stress controlled-improv” technique.
Many quilters want to do improvisational quilting and make it up as they go along, but struggle with how to start. It is stressful to have a stack of fabric and just begin without a plan.
This technique takes that away, and gives clear instructions for cutting and sorting the pieces. By the time you make layout decisions, you are well into the design and the simple choices will be easy.
The pattern contains three different size options, so you can make a small baby quilt, a throw or a bed-sized quilt.
The PDF pattern is available for instant download, so you can start sewing right away.
If you are more comfortable with video instruction, you will like the online course.
Learn on your own schedule at your own pace.
Video lessons demonstrate each step clearly.
This pattern is appropriate for beginners that have a basic understanding of using a rotary cutter and mat and can stitch a straight seam.
This pattern uses traditional western quilting techniques. It is not pojagi.
You will use five fabrics for the blocks and one fabric for the sashing and border. It looks great with either prints or solids.
