This quilt is made from one of the kits I made from our Community Service stash. When I make these kits, the goal is usually to pick colors that go together. It is always a pleasant surprise when the prints work well together, too.
The main thing I like about this version is that the quiltmaker scrambled the 4-patches more than I usually do. My plan is to make 4-Patches out of 2 fabrics. However, with only 6 fabrics and 6 blocks, it happens that colors or lights and darks may clump up in the layout phase. This quilt has 4 fabrics in each 4-Patch, which gives a scrambled, but more balanced look to the layout.
Variations are such an amazing part of quiltmaking--even something as simple as this pattern.
