16 fat quarters in bright colors


You’ll be needing 16 fat quarters 8 warm and 8 cool. Choose any colors, but to create the ‘splash’ be sure to choose something that creates a contrast between the fabrics in each row. The contrast should be strong between the triangles that touch either in the row above or below.

Batiks would create a whirl of color but don’t compromise on contrast. Start from dark grey to lilac, then aqua to dark blue. Go right up to lightest blue to start the color radiance, then tip over to warm lilac right in the center of the quilt. Then introduce warm reds. It’s magnificent, super easy using half square triangles, and such fun to make. Use an easy to follow tutorial from Bonjour Quilts.

Let this be your next quilt for summer, or adjust the colors to suit the season.
