Low-Contrast Fabrics Let the Color and Value Contrasts Shine!
This twist on a traditional Churn Dash quilt is striking in its simplicity. Value and color contrasts make it seem more complicated than it actually is.
Make it up in Christmas colors or in a color combination you love. It will be lovely in colors for other seasons, too.
While the designer chose low-contrast small prints, imagine how beautiful it will be in batiks or reproduction prints. It will be wonderful in flannel, too.
This is a super easy quilt to make, even for beginning quilters. Experienced quilters will love how quickly it goes together.
The finished quilt, from Quilt Doodle Designs, is 56″ x 68″. That’s a wonderful size for a throw quilt, or add more blocks for a bed quilt.
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!
