Catenary quilt pattern

Catenary refers to a certain type of arch that is often used in buildings and  bridges–my favorite example being the Gateway Arch in St Louis, Missouri. The design for this project is inspired by that graceful and graphic shape!


project size : w. 66″ x h. 77 1/2″ plus 2 other quilt sizes


fabric friendly : The cover project features fabrics from my Doe collection and uses 1/4-yard cuts for the blocks, which makes for plenty of mixing and matching a variety of prints!


techniques : basic piecing, needle-turn appliqué (Can use another appliqué technique if desired.)


pattern extras : how-to instructions with illustrations, multiple size options, directions for making a hanging sleeve
