Change the Mood by Simply Changing the Colors!
A beautiful large scale print and a matching border fabric are the basis for this gorgeous quilt. In this case, stunning butterflies on a black background guided the selection of the other fabrics. The result is a harmonious richly colored quilt.
Fabric selection is key for this pattern. It will be lovely in softer fabrics and in colors for every season. Select the large scale print and find a border fabric with the same or similar colors.
Once you have those fabrics, choose colors from the print to emphasize. Notice how the contrast of the black sashing (dark) and turquoise strips (light) help to bring the quilt alive.
It’s a very simple quilt to stitch together once you’ve found your fabrics. Even beginning quilters can complete this quickly.
The pattern, from Little Red Jug, is for a 60″ x 60″ quilt. Instructions are also included for a queen size quilt.
