Softer Contrasts are Beautiful Too!

Brilliant color against black is so striking in this eye-catching quilt. Sparkling stars and an Irish Chain create the compelling design.

Start by choosing a light, medium, and dark value of five different colors. Select two grays that are close in value for the Irish Chain and a contrasting background to set everything off.

While we love the version with the black background the quilt is wonderful with a light background too. This is a fun project for playing with color and value to create your own unique version.

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. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
