The quilt in the example was made from varying values of two similar greens and two similar blues. It will also work with just two colors instead of four, although the bit of variation adds interest to the overall design.
Be sure to select four distinct values in whatever colors you choose. Low-contrast prints, like batiks and mottled fabrics, let the overall design shine through.
A scrappy look will be charming too. Just be sure to organize fabrics into four distinct values.
Consider changing the background, as well, to complement the colors you choose. Make it either much lighter or much darker than your four primary values.
This is an easy quilt to make and one you’ll enjoy using for many years to come.
The finished size of this quilt is 52 1/2″ x 69 1/2″. The pattern also includes an assembly diagram for creating a 92 1/2″ x 115″ version of the quilt.
