::: Pattern Description :::
The Cross Check and Single Burst mini quilts rely on color value to create fun, dynamic quilts. The pattern has detailed information to help you confidently select your fabric and I hope they will inspire you to continue to explore color value!
Color value can also be used as a fun effect in blocks that do not have a transparency design to create the illusion of 3D or add interest to the design. In the Cross Check Mini Quilt, color value will be used to explore a 3D look of a traditional block, the King’s cross, and the elements of the block are extended into negative space to create a fun, modern design. In the Single Burst Mini Quilt, color value can be used to explore transparency.
f you have been hesitant to pick up any of my other transparency patterns, these mini quilts might be the perfect place to start: small projects with minimal fabric requirements might help free you from the fear of fabric selection. Both quilts only require three main fabrics (instead of 4 or more), and between the detail included in the mini quilt pattern release, my Fresh Quilting Season 2 video segments, several of my free tutorials, my Quilting Jetgirl Facebook group (where you can easily post photos and ask questions), and my Quilt Alongs, I hope you can find the encouragement and support you need to give transparency and color value selection a try!
