Modern quilts use lots of background white or grey to showcase the fabrics.
Showcase the fabrics and make quilts quickly and easily. This quilt uses small quantities of bright fabric to great effect and the background is a mixture of tone-on-tone whites. Greys are also used a lot in modern quilts, as they showcase the main fabrics.
Valerie shows how to make the quilt with contrast strips in a square, but in the background you can see examples of starting with a rectangle.
Quilting trends also to be simple – straight lines or something complementary to the pattern, such as echo quilting, so the walking foot would be an excellent choice.
If you need help with that, you could go to ‘How to fit your walking foot’ or ‘Simple Wavy line quilting’.
