    Look at Eleanor Burns' Quick Trip Water Lily from her book Quick Trip Quilts.

    Whatever you make will be beautiful. I see lots of lovely ideas being suggested.

    An easy way is to put them on point and use a cordnating color like browns, greens , whites ....whatever as your setting triangles

    Check out a batik TUMBLING BLOCKS baby quilt done by Miss Treated. It's beautiful. Works well with a light, a medium, and a dark component to form the 3-D effect.

    Jenny Beyer does lots of quilts in the gradations. They are done in her fabrics but it is the same thing. Try her website, many of her patterns are free. (no spell check, and I know I misspelled gradations!)

    Whatever you make, we want to see it!!
    That is a GREAT idea! And you're right... she'd get a two-fer!

    That link didn't work for me, either. I spent a fair bit of time at the cozy quilt site looking for the cotton rainbow!

    There are some great suggestions here. I'd also love to see pictures of what other people have made with colour shades.

In the back of my mind I was thinking of a quilt in which the colours blend into one another with a gradual shift overall, but don't have a pattern and can't find one. After a couple days of fruitless searches, I'm here looking for help. What would you do with the set? Do you have a link to a pattern suggestion? How are precut squares handled? Ah, the fun of exploring something new.

    Here's a picture of what I have:

    ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, beautiful!

    The great thing about a D9P is that any size of block can be used!
