This sparkling quilt will be so happy with a wide variety of light, medium and dark fabrics. The more fabrics added, the more interest is delivered. Your scrap basket is a great place to start. Utilize even the smallest of cuts to enhance your yardage. I like the cornerstones to be the opposite value of the log to which it is attached. I encourage you to study each block to determine the look you prefer. This would make a wonderful patriotic quilt usings assorted red, white and blue.Endless choices are your to make...Enjoy!
