How to choose your fabrics
My sample quilt uses a rainbow colour scheme and it’s a bright one. Alternatives to this bright colour scheme is using pastel equivalents or darker tones. Or you may just pick 2 colours plus a background.
Rainbow colours work well with light and dark background fabrics.
On page 15 of the pattern you’ll find several alternative colour schemes for the quilt.
If you want to get more tips, I’ve written about how to choose fabrics for a quilt before and I’ve even made a video.
Have a close look at the project with this promo video:

We made this quilt as a quilt along at the end of 2021. The pattern is still available and so are all the videos:
