Sweet Caroline Quilt Pattern - Twin Size in Dutch Garden!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


Sweet Caroline is a patchwork delight in blues and yellows!  This is a Twin size quilt.

Sweet Caroline quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts pattern shop.

DUTCH GARDEN SWEET CAROLINE TWIN QUILT


Sweet Caroline is a quick and easy strip pieced quilt made using yardage of medium and dark hues in a single colorway or, as in the Dutch Garden version, two colorways - blue and yellow.

This beautiful blue and yellow fabric collection is Dutch Garden by Bluprint, sadly no longer available.  It shouldn't be too difficult to find a substitute though; either an entire collection, or combining fabrics from the stash.

FEATHERED ROSES QUILTING DESIGN

Perfectly complementing the quilt top is Feathered Roses, a fairly wide edge-to-edge digital design.  Sweet Caroline is quilted in bright white thread.

Borrowed from my daughter's book collection, The Fellowship of the Ring, Heidi, and Heidi Grows Up.  And a small globe leftover from our homeschooling days.  :)
This beautiful quilt finished off beautifully with a yellow polka dot border from my stash (not part of Dutch Garden) and a blue border from the collection.

FABRIC PLACEMENT TO REPRODUCE THIS QUILT

This quilt is easily reproducible with your own fabrics.  Use medium yellows and blues as Assorted Medium Prints, and use darker yellows and blues as Assorted Darker Prints where called for in the pattern.  
The backing fabric is a small ditsy floral from the Dutch Garden collection, also used for the binding.

Beautiful quilt - blue and yellow is one of my favourite combinations! And I am thrilled to see the Heidi books; I think I must have read the Heidi series at least a dozen times over as a kid!
