Gambit Quilt - Tester Versions

Posted by Olivia Alaniz on

The Gambit Quilt pattern is finally available in my shop! You can get yourself a copy of the pattern here.
The Gambit quilt pattern is made up entirely of strip piecing! You will start off by creating large stripped units and then trimming them down to 2"-wide strips that you will use to piece together each block. This pattern is a great way to practice using a scant seam allowance and hone your point-matching skills.

The quilt was inspired by the wide variety of different tile mosaics throughout Europe. The rich diversity of unique designs and compositions that comprised these mosaics influenced the quilt's design.

The Gambit pattern was originally released in the Modern Quilt Guild Journal in 2022, so you may have seen it before! This was such an amazing opportunity that resulted in such a fun pattern for you all. I even had the sample displayed at QuiltCon this year!!

Pattern Details:

This pattern is rated as Intermediate because of the point-matching skill required and the need to have a very consistent ¼” seam allowance. If you’re able to do those two things, this quilt pattern is a walk in the park! The strip piecing style construction of Gambit makes this complicated-looking pattern simple to put together!

Gambit comes in one size (my favorite) - throw! You can find the fabric requirements below:
