Vivid colors are beautiful against a white or black background. Or, choose a color that complements your layer cake squares. Just be sure to keep enough contrast between the two so that the overall design stands out from the background.
Instructions are also included for a small 32″ square quilt made from 5″ charm squares. In this example, the colors pop against a black background. This size is perfect for a baby quilt or table topper.
The large quilt, from Shannon Mower and Modern Tradition Quilts, is 84″ square.
