The bright and cheerful Calendula Quilt has a bold geometric pattern which combines two popular craft ideas: crochet granny squares and patchwork quilts.

The pattern features classic granny motifs and two-color granny motifs, which look like two triangles in a square. Changing colors is quick and easy with the help of a photo tutorial on the last page.

The pattern includes eight additional motif layouts. For those who might want to design their own blanket, the pattern includes empty grid layouts to colorize on page 5. Choose your beloved colors and use these blank templates as your sketchpad to create your own unique design.
