Bonus Quilt Pattern


Haven is the bonus quilt from Easy Quilts Spring 2012. Melanie Greseth and Joanie Holton designed this queen-size quilt with Anna Griffin fabrics in mind. The barn raising set of the King's Crown Units and triangle-squares creates a medallion effect. We know you will enjoy making this one.
