Tumbling Blocks

This charm quilt was inspired by Jinny Beyer's book titled "Color Confidence for Quilters". I used 574 different fabrics collected from my stash, friends' finds, and sample packets. The quilt pattern is based on the 60° diamond. Careful placement of darks, mediums and lights create a three-dimensional effect. It was a challenge to adjust the berry vine of the border print (see below).
