Rich Colors Update the Look!

This classic quilt is simple to make with updated construction techniques. Fortunately, there’s no need to cut and sew together lots of little squares.

Instead, focus on choosing a pretty color palette and then watch how quickly the quilt goes together. Rich colors and strong contrasts between light and dark make a striking design. Or soften the look by reducing the contrast.

While we love just about any color theme against white, the quilt will be wonderful with other colors in the background. This is a fun design to play with and with several size choices, you may find yourself making more than one.

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!
