I'm exploring designs for scrappy quilts.
The first one four days ago had totally random color with an emphasis on value contrast. The second one two days ago was still focused on value contrast but I limited myself to greens in the foreground and light beiges in the background.
This one has light beiges in the background again. The foreground, however, uses two colors. A variety of browns that form squares and blue/purple bands connecting the squares. There is no rhyme or reason to the placement of any particular brown or blue. As always value contrast is very important.
I started with these two simple units. Each one is 4"x4" finished size.
I connected up the units in the border to give the border a finished look.
This twin quilt is 64"x92".
This quilt is the result of playing with two very simple units. You do not need complicated blocks in order to design interesting quilts.
