Blues Will be Stunning for a Cool Version!

Pull fabrics of one predominant color out of your stash for a sensational quilt to display just about anywhere. The varying hues of orange chosen by the designer, accented with reds and pinks, make the quilt sizzle with vibrant color.

A combination of blues, or whatever color you like best, will be just as wonderful. Keep the patches close in value for the most impact against a neutral background.

Add interest by pulling in a few fabrics sitting next to the predominant color on the color wheel.

In this case, red (and pink, which is light red) adds interest to the oranges. For blue, that would be either violet or green, depending on which direction the blues are taking. For example, blue, blue-green and green will be a stunning cool version of the hot oranges and red.

The finished quilt, from Carolyn Design, is 66 1/2″ x 77 1/2″.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources.
