A Cozy Throw Quilt Tutorial with Huckleberry Saltbox

Hello everyone, it’s Daisi Toegel from Flower Sew here. I am very happy to share my project using the Huckleberry Saltbox collection by Karen Walker of Laugh Yourself Into Stitches for Riley Blake Designs.

When I first saw this collection and the colors, I immediately thought of a throw size quilt, and then the designs started popping up in my mind, so I created a simple pattern that, in my opinion, shows every beautiful detail of the specific prints I chose from this delightful collection.

The collection has so many beautiful prints that it was hard choosing which ones I wanted to make the quilt with, so I chose contrasting colors for the background, and a mix of similar colors (red) for the outer corners of my design and a darker brown with blue for the center of the blocks.

You can find the detailed tutorial of this quilt on my blog www.flowersew.com/cozy-throw-quilt-tutorial

This simple design allowed me to choose a simple quilting style as well.

I quilted it on the diagonal in both directions using the wavy decorative stitch on my domestic sewing machine JUKI HZL F-600.

The good news is that this quilt is not set on point (diagonally), although you’d think so when you look at it for the first time, it actually comes together in rows making this project a quick one to put together, and there are only 2 different blocks that are alternated throughout the design.

The quilt is made of 4 half-square-triangle base blocks, each single HST has a snowball corner in one of the 2 different color placements (red or blue+brown).

This quilt finishes at 56 1/2in square and the design is set on a 7 x 7 block grid.

I loved this collection because the colors go with basically any type of decoration, modern, french country, farmhouse rustic, or bohemian, to name a few of my favorites. I will probably play a bit more with some different designs, maybe a more classic look like a granny square block base? Or a log cabin? The possibilities are many, plus the cozy and warm look that I love.

I hope you liked this quilt, and visit my website for the tutorial!! If you make it, I’d love to see it, please tag me on Instagram @daisitoegel
