Play with Value and Color to Make This Quilt Your Own

Instructions Are Provided for 7 Quilt Sizes!
Complex-looking blocks create a lovely overall design in this versatile quilt. While it looks difficult, squares and half-square triangles combine for simple construction.
Play with color and value placement and watch how the blocks change. The designer chose a pretty print for the center blocks and a darker fabric for the diamond shapes to create the striking design.
We’d love to see variations of the value placement. For example, consider the reverse – dark background, medium value triangles and light diamonds. We reversed the colors of the quilt below in Photoshop to show what that might look like.
The quilt is beautiful in many color combinations so go with what you like best.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
