Learn About Color and Value While Making This Quilt!

Careful color and value placement produces a mesmerizing three dimensional illusion in this exquisite quilt. Select gradations of your favorite colors and set them off with a geometric border fabric for your own unique version. Or, use a solid fabric for the center and borders.

The pattern, from Jinny Beyer, can be interpreted in many ways. Below you’ll find examples of mockups done during one of Jinny’s seminars. It’s amazing how many “looks” can be created from the same fabrics and pattern just by changing fabric placement.

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!
