Dig into your stash and pull out light and dark fabrics. This is a wonderful stash-buster and a great use of scraps. Just stay away from the medium value fabrics so as not to muddy up the overall design.

This is also an easy quilt to make, even for beginning quilters. You just need to be able to cut and sew accurately to create this beauty.
There’s plenty of room here to play with color. Give your quilt a predominant color scheme or go full-on scrappy where anything goes. Add a border or not. The choices are entirely yours.
