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.

Assemble Nine-Patch Units

1. Referring to Diagram 1, lay out five solid black 2-1⁄2" squares and four red print 2-1⁄2" squares in three rows.

2. Sew together squares in each row. Press seams toward solid black. Join rows to make a Nine-Patch unit. Press seams in one direction. The unit should be 6-1⁄2" square including seam allowances.

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to make four Nine-Patch units total.
