Cast pattern from Lizard Creek Quilting

...with a pattern name like Cast Iron, I just had to find the perfect backdrop for it!! And our little town had just the spot!!

There is a great little pasture on the edge of town where these horses graze. The golden hour in photography was approaching. So I coaxed my dear husband to get in the Ranger and off we went into town.

He braved all the mosquitos that come out at sunset and crawled down the steep roadside ditch to hold the quilt for me!! How supportive is that?!?

Cast Iron finishes at 64" x 80", so it is a great size lap quilt. While it looks super complicated, it is actually strip pieced into 8" blocks. Color placement is key to creating the zig zag effect. Pattern includes a detailed color combination chart along with a coloring page to come up with your own color placement!! Both print and PDF download patterns are available on my website Lizard Creek Quilting. Use the code CASTIRON in my shop for 30% off the PDF download until 2/7/2020.

Fabrics are from the Mesa Verda by Kathy Engle line for Island Batik. Look for it in your quilt shops soon!!
