About this Quilt

quilt-now-you-see-me-flatGet out your fabrics and start playing with your favorite color combinations as you piece this festive quilt. The criss-cross layout begs for bold color choices. Designer Denise Russell chose beautiful jewel tones to accentuate this directional quilt block. The easy to piece quilt will come together quickly using timesaving sewing techniques for making triangle squares. Fabrics in the quilt shown are from the Jinny Beyer Palette by Jinny Beyer for RJR Fabrics, however this quilt would be equally lovely using small-scale prints.

Designer Notes

Now You See Me has very clear geometric lines emphasized by the fabrics and colors I chose. What I did not see at first were the stars created at the intersection of four blocks. As soon as I noticed them I realized this design was a great candidate for the hidden blocks challenge.

And so it is in life: Oftentimes we focus on the in-your-face features of situations and fail to notice the presence of ten¬der mercies! – Denise Russell
