A Striking Country Quilt Cozy and Warm

There’s No Limit To The Color Ways.

A warm winter quilt can be made using a mix of wintry, or autumn colors, but it’s the little quirks that make each quilt one of a kind.


Use Cheryl Walls guideline for choosing colors for a striking effect. There are categories of dark, light and medium. Darks are dark blues, purples, reds,greens, olives, browns and black. Mix with lighter shades of the same colors, as well as whites, creams, tans and yellows. Medium colors are those that don’t fit into light or dark. They depend on how they are combined in the fabric. When a mix of all three are put together it creates a definite contrast, keeping the finished design clear and defined.
