Clean lines and modern geometric elements, softened by desert colors, help to create a beautiful quilt reminiscent of the harsh landscape of the Sonoran Desert. The Sonora quilt pattern uses a combination of larger blocks and easy foundation piecing to make a quilt top you can assemble in no time at all. Use bright, bold prints to make a vibrant quilt, soft desert colors or prints for a southwest feel, or choose dark blues and creams for a desert night sky.

This pattern includes three sizes: throw, twin and queen.

Difficulty: Advanced Beginner


This pattern is suited for an advanced beginner who has had some previous quilting experience. The more complicated piecing sections are done using simple foundation piecing and help the quilt come together easily. If you have never done foundation piecing before, this is a great quilt to start on. The foundation pieced sections are simple and the supplemental foundation piecing instructions (separate file) will give you great tips on perfect foundation piecing.

The 32 page PDF comes with complete instructions, beautiful computer generated diagrams and color photos. The PDF pattern pages print out directly from your computer onto standard 8.5″ x 11″ paper.

In addition to the pattern PDF, you will receive a BONUS PDF for basic foundation piecing instructions. This will be a separate file from the pattern. The supplemental instructional PDF includes instructions for beginners as well as helpful tips for the seasoned quilter. Also included is a sample 6″ x 6″ block to test and play with your new foundation piecing skills.
