Select a variety of batiks, mottled or small-print fabrics in coordinating colors. Sweet spring colors are so lovely, or go bright and bold. Darker, more subdued colors will be pretty too.
You might also consider using a colored background to set off the main fabrics. This pattern will translate beautifully to just about any color combination.
This is an easy project, and a relatively quick one for experienced quilters. Beginners with good basic skills will also enjoy this pattern.
The finished quilt, from Sue Harvey and Sandy Boobar, is 52″ x 63″ once completed.
The “Sweet and Spicy” quilt pattern is included in the Spring 2014 issue of Quilter’s World. It’s available as a digital download.
