Color Block Plus Quilt pattern is a bold and graphic design, beginner friendly, sure to please both the modern and traditional quilter alike. It is a play on the ever popular Plus motif.
This pattern is quick and fun to make, using strip piecing methods.
High contrast in color and value choices really make this design pop! Solids, in dark and light are the "go to" option. Pair a large print with a contrasting solid or blender to add some fun! A warm/cool combo amps up the color play! The possibilities are as creative as you are! Look closely at the photo of fabric combos for some ideas using prints, solids, linens, and custom dyed fabrics!
