Tropical Sunset Quilt Pattern by Karla Kiefner of Creative Bee Studios for Hoffman California Fabrics

Tropical Sunset is that quilt pattern! Look complicated? Nope!

Lots of cutting measuring and seams? NOPE!

It’s basically one background piece and three borders. That’s IT!

Use both beautiful sides of three fabrics (and the RIGHT side for one border) on one background piece!

Tropical Sunset starts with a beautiful beach sunset background. Add the awesome chipped paint window frame and fused panes, a “stop” border and one “wallpaper” border. Then place your tropical bouquet of flowers and the woven base in the window sill and you’ve got one pretty sunset to take you through the year!

Tropical Sunset is made with Hoffman California Fabrics’ new line “Meet Me in Paradise”.

It’ll be a little while before “Meet Me in Paradise” is available in stores so I’ve included how to piece your own beachy background panel in the pattern. Like in every #usebothsides pattern, I teach you how to audition BOTH sides of fabrics, so you can grab from your stash and whip up this happy quilt!

As with all “Use BOTH Sides” quilt patterns, you discover the nuances of value as you learn to use BOTH beautiful sides of fabric!

My first design using Hoffman California Fabrics was Phoebee 2.0 seen below.

Use both beautiful sides of only THREE fabrics for VariLovable Star – shown below using Hoffman California Fabrics Floral Rhapsody.

VariLovable Star is made using one block and three fabrics. Start with a small Variable Star block and use the reverse of the fabric for the background “light” pieces. Nestle that star by using it as the center of the next largest star. The center star and the largest, outer star are matching. The quilt is bound with the fabric of the third (orange) star. This quilt goes together quickly and really makes a statement…or you might say, splash!
