Winter Solstice Throw Quilt in Peppered Cottons!

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


Today I'm sharing a Winter Solstice Throw quilt that I made in 2020.  Uh, well, better late posting it than never!

Winter Solstice combines oversized star and Irish Chain blocks for a super quick finish.  The Irish Chains are made with two different grays for an added twist.

The Winter Solstice quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts pattern shop.


Winter Solstice Quilt Pattern


The Winter Solstice quilt pattern includes two sizes - Throw and Queen.  This quilt is the Throw size.  The design is exactly the same in both sizes, but with different sized blocks.  The large blocks go together delightfully quickly and still result in a stunning quilt design.

A Rainbow of Goodness


This Winter Solstice quilt is made with a rainbow of Peppered Cottons.  I won a FQ bundle a number of years ago, and it sat around just waiting for the perfect quilt, and this is it!  

You'll find Peppered Cottons right here.

For fabric selection, choose three colorways and gather three hues (light, medium, and dark) in each of the five colorways.  Then add a background color (black is shown), and add two colors for the Irish Chain blocks (light and medium gray shown).

The Throw size uses a FQ or less of each of the rainbow of colors for the star blocks, and the Queen size uses 1/2 yard or less of each of the colors.







Longarm Quilting


Unfortunately, I cannot find the name of the longarm quilting design in my design file.  It was stitched in black thread on my HandiQuilter Fusion with ProStitcher.





The Winter Solstice quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts pattern shop.
