Contra Dance is the third in the Straight to the Point Series. And there are SIX sizes! Contra Dance is especially good when you want to feature a large or medium-large scale print. The above sample was created with the "You Go Girl" fabric line by Northcott Fabrics. 

Contra Dance has three simple blocks: a square 8", 10" or 12", a 4-patch made with 4", 5" or 6" squares and a block with 2 smaller 4-patches and 2 plain patches. All the blocks are set as straight rows. The quilt is then cut and re-sewn into an on-point setting. There are NO diagonal rows of different sizes, NO setting triangles and NO corner blocks. Our technique makes On-Point sets a snap. See our quick demonstration page.

And we just have to share with you what one of our customers, Marcia N., said...

"I have just completed the pattern - Contra Dance. I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed making this quilt and that the instructions were clear enough even for a beginner like me. I intend to purchase more of your patterns and know that I will enjoy them just as much. Thanks for the designs that look like an expert did them but are for 'newbies' like me."

Note: If your quilting style requires completely perfect points,this pattern may not be for you. Due to the nature of the technique,the corners of blocks that touch the inside border are slightly trimmed.

Ann Anderson assisted in the design of this quilt pattern.
