A variety of neutral fabrics in cream, tan and light gray form the “white” group. Assorted reds and blacks form the other two groups. The fun polka dot black sashing and red corner squares bring order to the controlled chaos.
The scrappy nature of this quilt makes it so beautiful and interesting. The softly colored fabrics give it a vintage look, as well. You can do the same with your version by choosing three color groups. Select a color group for the background and two contrasting colors to feature. You’ll have a gorgeous quilt in your favorite colors once you are done.
