Add touches of elegance and sophistication to your quilt with a simple color palette of red, black, and white. In this wall hanging a toile print takes center stage among subtle overall prints. Fabrics are from the Belle Provence collection by Deborah Edwards for Northcott.
A fussy-cut ombré print background draws the eye into light spots, making the bright reds and yellows pop off the quilt like 3D shapes. Large floral prints stand out when cut into giant diamonds. Fabrics are from the Scarlet collection by Pamela Mostek and the Shades collection by Kinkame, both for Clothworks.
Stir up a scrappy mix of chocolate browns, marshmallow creams, and other assorted prints. Let charcoal-gray sashing hold it all together. Fabrics are from assorted collections by Jo Morton for Andover Fabrics.
Plant a garden of floral Square-in-a-Square blocks using sweet 1930s reproduction prints. Let white sashing represent the picket fence. Fabrics are from the Hanky Panky collection by Darlene Zimmerman for Robert Kaufman Fabrics.
You’re the city planner in this town! Build house blocks two at a time, then do a little home improvement by embellishing them with stitched details. Fabrics are from the Good Morning collection by Me and My Sister Designs for Moda Fabrics.
Create a miniature neighborhood with cute house blocks in different sizes and colors. Small floral prints add interest to the houses. Fabrics are from the Edo collection by The Henley Studio for Makower UK from Andover Fabrics.
Purposefully arranged triangle-squares produce a chevron pattern in a summer-theme wall hanging. Pops of color in the patterned border echo the bright prints and batiks in the quilt center. Fabrics are from the Flip Floppin Summer Fun collection by Wendy Bentley and Tonga Treat Strip Bazaar collection, both for Timeless Treasures Fabrics.
Get the look of a pretty stained glass window by choosing fabrics with deep color and an intricate design. Nine Winding Ways blocks and a patterned border will add a pop of color to your wall. Fabrics are from the Deco collection by Jason Yenter for In the Beginning Fabrics.
