Go Scrappy, Traditional or Contemporary!

Fabric selection can give a quilt vastly different looks. In fact, that’s part of the fun of quilting – making a pattern uniquely yours by playing with color and value.

This pattern shows very clearly how colors and fabric styles affect the finished result. The quilt is beautiful whether done in a scrappy style, given a traditional treatment or brought up to date with modern colors and fabrics.

Softly colored scraps can produce a pretty vintage style quilt. Bolder scraps will be lovely too.
