A combination of lights, mediums, and darks from several color families creates a stunning quilt. Solids are added for an accent with the prints. The “background” of the quilt consists of light and light/medium large scale prints cut into triangles and sewn together, making the larger diamond shapes. 2 1/2” strips from the dark/medium and dark small prints and solids are the “sashing” strips between the blocks, and the blocks are sewn together in diagonal rows. A strip of the large scale theme print which ties all the colors together runs down both sides of the quilt.
