I'm excited to share Marrakesh with all of you! This pattern gives you the freedom to experiment with color and how you want to break down the block, allowing each quilter to create a personalized look. So, let's talk a bit about elements that can really change how this block looks – color and value.
First off, let's talk about color. It's pretty straightforward; the colors you choose have a huge impact on your quilt's overall look and feel. For instance, cool colors like blues and greens can create a calm and soothing atmosphere, while warm colors like reds and oranges can give your quilt a cozy and inviting vibe. Additionally, where you put the colors in the quilt blocks creates a wonderful variety of looks!
A Bit About Value & Contrast
Light fabrics bring brightness, while dark ones add depth. Combining light and dark fabrics can create that eye-catching contrast that makes your quilt design stand out, or fade into a soothing calmness. When you play with contrast by pairing light and dark fabrics, you can really make your quilt design pop. High contrast creates bold, striking visuals, while low contrast offers a softer, more delicate touch.
Pictures are the best way to showcase some examples of these design elements. I hope the mockups below will get your design mind buzzing and inspire you to play with this block!
Have fun sewing!
