Autumn Medley is such a fun quilt for showing off prints, playing with color, and experimenting with value. What are your ideas?

Here’s a fun Christmas theme.

Go for soft and subtle with a monochromatic gradient theme. Pushing the darkest value to the center pulls the eye inward.

Play with batik fabrics and use value to highlight the center star.
