Today we are telling you a little bit more about piecing the blocks. These big blocks are composed of tiny little pieces, and you are encouraged to use your stash of light prints to make a low-volume, scrappy masterpiece. I took my Tone it Down quilt a different direction, by using bright, colorful sashing and a "planned-scrappy" method for piecing. I wanted a plan for my quilt, so I used the small prints in the Wishes collection by Sweetwater Fabrics for a scrappy look.
