Stay with red, blue and brown on white, or make this up in different colors entirely. The overall design will show best with good value contrast between the patches and the background.
This is a wonderful candidate for a Quilt of Valor. Present it to a service member or their family for a thoughtful gift.
While it looks complex, it’s an easy quilt to make. Nine-patches, squares and rectangles will stitch together quickly.
The finished quilt, from designer Anita Peluso, is 58″ x 70 1/2″.
