This quilt is not about color but contrast. A variety of contrasts is necessary. It's a great block for ugly fabrics as the print becomes less noticeable by the rearranging of pieces. A multicolor quilt is one of my favorites to do! You can put any colors in this one and it will work! Be sure and play with the many different layouts possible if you make it.
It's 48 blocks that finish @ 7"; a nice size lap @ 55x68. In case you missed my tut on making this block, here is the link:

Careful piecing will ensure a nice meeting of the seams and intersections. Other than that, it's a great block for scrappies and easy to do! Hope you are inspired to make one!
