Koi Garden Mystery Quilt 60” x 80” updated 12/13/12
This 60” x 80” quilt will frame a single piece of fabric, which it uses as a medallion center.
Koi Garden Fabric Requirements
Fabric 1: Panel or “to die for” large scale fabric: .75 yards to 1.25 yards. Read on: This will be cut to 20.5 inches wide by 40.5 inches long and be the center of the quilt. Most “panels” that are 2/3 yds or 24” can be trimmed to this size. Large scale prints (pref. 24” repeat) will usually need to be fussy cut lengthwise to find the best section of the print to use. Think large Asian prints, large florals, large animal repeats (peacocks, jungle, wolves, eagles, sea life, etc.).
Fabric 2: small scale fabric, medium to dark color, pulled from Fabric 1, to frame it: .25 yards
Fabric 3/light: light background, color pulled from Fabric 1, or compatible. 3.5 yards
Fabric 4: medium to dark, small scale color pulled from Fabric 1, or compatible: .5 yards
Fabric 5: medium to dark, small scale color pulled from Fabric 1, or compatible: .5 yards
Fabric 6: medium to dark, small scale color pulled from Fabric 1, or compatible: .5 yards
Fabric 7: medium to dark, small scale color pulled from Fabric 1, or compatible: .5 yards
Note: If you are having trouble pulling 4 colors for fabrics 4-7, you can use 2 fabrics, doubling the amounts: that is, Fabric 4/5: 1 yard and Fabric 6/7: 1 yard
