Value Contrasts Make it Work!

This stunning quilt is a beautiful example of how a simple design can produce striking results. The key is the contrast between the light and dark accents that set off the colorful squares.

The charming baby quilt shown below will also be lovely on a table or wall. Or make one of the larger oblong versions for a bed or for use as a throw.

Any color palette works beautifully in this quilt. It’s a great project for 5″ or 10″ pre-cut squares. In fact, it’s a wonderful project for leftovers in your stash. Tie various colors together with the dark accent.
