Part of the success of this quilt design is the use of red and green, complementary colors on the color wheel. Using complements intensifies both colors. The fabrics are also a mix of large and small prints, stripes, and tone-on-tones. This adds visual interest. Keep these things in mind as you choose your fabrics.
