This quilt is the challenge project for Thumbstall Quilt Guild’s biennial quilt show in July. The challenge is to use this bright colored focus fabric and blocks that contain only squares. Other elements that could be used are setting triangles and embellishments.
I struggled with the coordinating fabrics for this quilt because I normally choose earth tones and ‘Thimleberries’ type fabrics – not brights for my quilts. However, I think I came up with the perfect fabrics to compliment the focus fabric – off-white and white on white.
These toned down the focus fabrics and I think the finished mini-quilt (it measures 18″ square) looks as those it’s full of brilliant gems.
