Remember those squares? Well, they’re not squares any longer. They’re a nice little baby quilt/wall hanging. Can’t you see this in a nursery? Light, airy and feminine.
I know a lot of people shy away from Jane’s prints. They overwhelm some and intimidate others. Working with bold, colorful prints can be a challenge if you are used to soft, pale color schemes with light design details.
Here’s proof that you can make a little color go a long way. I mixed fussy cut blocks with solid white and stuck to a simple quilting design. The result is very different from all of my other Sassaman quilts. This one is understated yet interesting. It is calm but full of charm. And just look how well it goes with the quilted and embroidered pillow.
Don’t let yourself be fooled into avoiding colorful prints laden with design elements. They hold a treasure trove of possibilities. Isolate a few of your favorite design elements, fussy cut them and see what happens. You just might be pleasantly surprised.
