Streak of Lightning quilt pattern
Influenced by the elements, Streak of Lightning is a striking pattern that looks great on a bed! Denyse designed her Streak of Lightning as a tribute to a quilt made by Emeline Gallup Smith around 1850 in Rhode Island, published in Down by the Old Mill Stream: Quilts in Rhode Island, by Linda Welters and Margaret T. Ordoñez.
This pattern offers an opportunity to practice sewing triangles. Aligning the “streak” points across the quilt to make the pattern is precise and careful work and the result well worth the effort, but your quilt will look great even if those points don’t perfectly align!
Create your own Streak of Lightning quilt with yardage of Denyse's licensed print fabric collections and a coordinating solid, or sew from your stash. The example shown is made with prints from Denyse's Five + Ten fabric collection and a Ruby + Bee solid from Windham fabrics.
This pattern includes easy-to-follow instructions with diagrams and measurements to make this quilt in crib/baby, twin, queen, or king size and pillow sham.
