The 2018 Tonga Lush collection features fourteen fabrics in a palette of creams shading to soft blush, rose into burgundy, and vivid greens all nested in a navy-blue base. The Lush Block-of-the-Month quilt, 108” square, was designed to showcase this beautiful collection. This 11-month program is composed of monthly blocks and monthly components. The Dresden blocks are made with curved pieced handles and finished points for simple appliqué by machine or hand. The blooming center block points are easily made with Creative Grids ruler or the paper templates included with the pattern. Throughout the quilt the classically pieced blocks are enhanced by unique color placement.
