Just like its namesake gemstones, this design doesn’t need anything extra to be impressive. Scott Flanagan’s sophisticated quilt features large, dynamic blocks in a limited scrappy palette. The contrast between the pale background and the cool blacks and sparkling reds in the piecing gives the quilt a graphic, modern look.
