Somerset - A New Quilt Pattern

Meet Somerset, a fun new pattern. It comes in 5 sizes from Baby to King. I made the lap size in 5 fabulous summery colored fabrics.  This was my favorite color scheme, but you'll see down below that you can use 2 to 5 different fabrics in this pattern and change the look of it. Lots of pictures ahead! It looks complicated, but it's really not.

This one below has 5 fabrics and is just a different color scheme that the original. I love the use of gray and black in this one.

In this one, the gray fabric (fabric #3) is replaced with white and give is a lighter feel.

For this red and black quilt, fabric #1 and fabric #5 are both red, fabrics #2 and #4 are black, and fabric #3 is gray.

I swapped out the gray (fabric #3) for white in this next one to make it a two color quilt.

This quilt has fabrics #1 and #5 the same. The bolder colors stand out more and the lighter colors fall more into the background.

Here is a baby size in a monochromatic color scheme using 4 shades of blue. Fabrics #1 and #5 are the same in this quilt.

Finally, how about a different background color? Black is nice with this color scheme.

By changing up where you put the prints and how many prints you use, you can get different looks to the quilt. I hope I've given you some inspiration today to looks at patterns a little bit differently. 

You can find the pattern in my etsy shop here.
