A Modern Color Palette is a Fresh Touch!

Deep charcoal gray and brilliant crayon colors give a modern twist to the classic Log Cabin quilt. This striking quilt will become a much-admired focal point in whichever room you choose to display it.

Colorful tone-on-tone prints seem to glow next to the solid dark background. However, you can give the quilt a different personality that is just as interesting by softening the colors and contrasts.
