Some inspiration from the Canvas pattern (which I purchased):
This one has a great use of centered/printed fabrics, with the 4 color blocks on the corners that mimic the colors in the center. Well done.
This one is interesting. The color shadings in the block make it look "washed." I don't like the quilt as much as the pillow though. Maybe because the quilt has batiks, which have never been something I gravitate towards.
