Dig into your scraps and pull out the reds. Or, coordinate a selection of fat quarters. Replicate the look shown here by choosing subtle prints without much contrast. Or, imagine red and white prints. The look may not be quite as traditional but it will be stunning!
Of course, if red isn’t your thing, this quilt will be striking in your favorite two-color combo. Navy and white comes to mind, as does bold aqua and soft yellow or peach instead of white.
The finished quilt, by designer Nancy Mahoney, is 77″ x 77″. Four blocks would make a lovely table topper, while 9 would create a crib quilt.
