Spangled Stars Quilt-Along Color Ideas

I'm rolling out other color options for my Spangled Stars Quilt-Along today. Imagine what you could create after you see these! Grab the button and quilt along! The fun starts Thursday, April 30, with prizes along the way.

Though this quilt design leans toward a patriotic theme,

it can be done in other colors. I've got a few suggestions, using the twin size as a model.

A monochromatic scheme, because I love pink! Sweet!


Another pink, this time with green. Just as sweet!

Or maybe pink flowers in the garden. Oh, liking this!

For the men, taupe and marsala, the Pantone Color of the Year. Subtle and refined.

Or maybe something wilder.

And of course, there's one for Christmas, so there's plenty of time to finish it!

See, lots of options! Don't feel tied to Red, White and Blue. If you're feeling scrappy, like me, choose a color scheme and use several fabrics for each color. I personally think quilts are more interesting when there are many fabrics to carry out the theme. Shop that stash! I know you have one!

Happy Quilting!
