This quilt can be done up in the colors shown, for a cute trip around the neighborhood, or in a rainbow of colors for a colorful quilt. I could also see it as a Halloween-style mini (with lots of embellishments) and it would be great as a patriotic quilt, done up in red, white and blue. The directions are clear, concise and with lots of photos, so even a beginning quilter can follow along (although some sewing experiences is preferred).
