Blacks, browns, and grays contrast with the lighter red, cream, tan and muted turquoise for a sensational color combination. The wide value range, from black to cream, makes the overall design pop.
Dig into your stash and pull out a nice assortment for the light and dark areas of your quilt. Decide on a focus color or two to build your quilt around, in this case red and black/brown.
The finished quilt, from designer Lissa Alexander, is 72 1⁄2 × 96 1⁄2″ .
