A Rich Color and Black Will be Wonderful, Too!
This classic quilt is simply stunning in ruby and white. It will be wonderful in other two-color combinations as well. We can easily imagine it in delft blue and white, as well as other color themes.
The quilt is unified because all the ruby red patches have a bit of white in them. While red and white create a strong contrast, these prints are relatively low in contrast. They add texture and interest without taking away from the overall design. The wide variety of prints adds interest, too.
Two simple blocks create the overall design. Beginners will love how easy this is to make while experienced quilters will enjoy how quickly it goes together.
Designed by Maria Umhey, the finished quilt is 80″ x 80″.
You’ll find the pattern for “Which Way Is Up” in the September/October 2016 issue of McCall’s Quilting.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
