The Icicles quilt measures 50-1/2″ x 68-1/2″ and is a modern take on a classic “French Braid” quilt. It features a light and dark Background print plus supporting fabrics. Plus, it is scrap-friendly! This kit uses Amanda Murphy’s black, white, and grey Botanica collection for Contempo by Benartex. This pattern is great for almost any collection when combined with a dark and light background print.
FABRIC: A modern interpretation of the wonders of nature, Amanda Murphy’s Botanica is quite simply stunning. The dynamic prints are beautifully balanced in both scale and value, and the sophisticated monochromatic palette of grey, black, and white will have wide appeal. Use this contemporary collection on its own or in conjunction with colorful basics like Cotton Shot.
