I used a monochromatic theme for each block in this quilt (orange, red, navy, and turquoise), which allowed me to achieve a very cohesive pattern and appearance using some very odd scrap fabrics. I used solid white Kona Cotton for the background. The inside border is cut from a variety of bright prints, and I used a modern-looking print fabric by Cotton+Steel for the outer border to give the quilt an up-to-date look. The negative space is an ideal opportunity to showcase great quilting. This quilt is made up of four very large blocks, which are each made using 49 squares and half-square triangles. This quilt is a great one for creating triangle scraps I call snippets.
