Joseph's Coat

Two Sample Quilt Layouts

 

 

The Joseph's Coat quilt block is designed with the story from the Bible in mind -- that being that Joseph wore a coat of many colours. If ever there was a quilt block that demanded to be made as a scrappy block, this is it.

The two sample quilts shown below are very different. The quilt layout on the left uses an on point setting of the block, with sashing strips in the same colour as the background to make the blocks appear to "float". Additional blank blocks offer up more chances to use lots of extra colour. The quilt layout on the right is a standard side by side setting of the blocks which offers a dazzling arrangement of the scraps in the quilt -- much as the original coat likely featured.

I couldn't stop designing quilts for this block so here is more inspiration.
