Royal blue and black have always been a favorite combination of ours and it’s perfect for this pattern. However, many other color combinations will be just as lovely.
You might also consider switching up the fabric styles. We can imagine softer colors with plaids or polka dots thrown in for a beautiful rendition with a totally different personality.
While the quilt looks complex, it’s constructed with square patches, half-square triangles and 4-patches. Take your time and you’ll find this to be much easier to make than it seems at first glance.
The finished quilt, from designer Mary Fons (based on Liz Porter’s “Milky Way” quilt), is 68″ x 84″.
