This Will Be Lovely In Other Color Combinations, Too!

Half-square triangles in two value ranges create a stunning quilt to enjoy at Christmas or all year around. The large blocks allow the fabrics to shine in this easy-to-make quilt. Layer cake squares are ideal for this project, although fat quarters and yardage can be used as well.

While we love the red and green, any color combo will be lovely in this quilt. Think about autumn shades or softer colors for spring. You can easily adjust the size of this quilt, too. Reduce the number of blocks to make a charming square table topper.

The Dark Side…or Not Layer Cake Quilt

Select a combination of light fabrics and darker fabrics, keeping the values close in each range. Careful value placement makes this pattern work, so it’s important to stay organized. Other than that this is an easy quilt to stitch together.
