I Spy Lanterns


Accent triangles bracket squares of print fabrics in these vertical strings of lanterns. The design was planned to let prints shine, though pieced scrappy blocks, crumb blocks or embroidered blocks replacing the print squares would be interesting variations. All angles are achieved with stitch-and-flip (snowballed corners) construction, creating a complex design while cutting only squares. Included baby (40.75 in. x 53.5 in.) and throw (54.5 in. x 71.5 in.) sizes use the same layout.


Pattern has been tested by independent quilters and features

  • separate cutting page for each quilt size

  • clear, detailed diagrams and instructions organized into easy-to-manage steps

  • pressing directions to help nest seams

The design is pictured in Northcott's Color Collage collection, shipping to stores in February 2022, and was featured in Northcott's April 2021 lookbook.
