Obviously, this version of this quilt has a prominent secondary design with the brown tones in the center, but the neat thing is you can adjust the layout with your fabrics and whatever bolder tones speak to you when you're laying it out. I had just enough brown pieces in my blocks that this almost argyle criss-cross design emerged and it was too cool so I kept it that way.
I would like to make another version of this quilt and I attempted to start cutting out strips using my stash to make it even scrappier, but once I got elbow deep in my scraps I realized I didn't have as many prints as I thought I'd have and I might switch my plan to batiks, but I've moved onto other projects in the meantime...
Once I bust into my batik scraps, who knows, I may just make this bigger depending on how many different fabrics I pull!
Even though this quilt looks complex and it has lots of pieces, it is so quick to make! I promise! I combined some of the best tips and tricks I had up my sleeve to create this design and I'm sure you'll love it if you decide to make one too.
If you were making this quilt, what fabrics would you choose? I'd love to know what you think. I may even alter my plan a bit if you inspire me with something I hadn't thought of yet!
