Intermediate Quilt Pattern: Seattle World's Fair

Georgina Fries

Much like the 1962 event it’s named for, this quilt by Georgina B. Fries of Lothian, Maryland, exemplifies the forward-looking optimism of the mid-century modern aesthetic. The versatile one-block design will let you show off your favorite scraps to their best advantage, such as the vintage 1940s fabrics Fries used, while the on-point setting and solid borders offer the perfect opportunity for custom heirloom quilting. Start your own version today with the pattern in Quilters Newsletter June/July 2016.
