There is something especially lovely about the Ebb and Flow Quilt by Karin Jordan of Leigh Lauren Studios. Maybe it’s the patterns she chose or perhaps the subtle repetition of colors. It could be the fact that the quilt top uses every last little bit of fabric from a 40 Fat Eighths — no waste! Or maybe it’s truly all of those things all wrapped up into a gorgeous finished quilt. This one comes with an easy-to-follow chart for piecing the quilt top, making it an easy finish for first time quilters and experts alike. What patterns would you choose?
