We can see this small quilt with a black or dark charcoal background, or, perhaps a muted neutral tan for autumn. If you’re planning to use it as a table cloth, a darker background would hide stains better than a light one would (learn more about quilts as tablecloths).
Whatever colors you choose, this is a relatively simple pattern that should go together quickly. The quilting itself can be as simple or complex as you want to make it. The pictured quilt has a lot of intricate quilting, but simpler quilting would be equally charming.
The finished quilt is 48.5″ square, making it a generously sized wall quilt or table topper.
