Light Tricks

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.
