Welcome! When it comes to colour combinations for your Sugarcubes quilt, the possibilities are pretty much endless. The options below are the ones illustrated in the pattern for Baby, Small Throw, Large Throw, and Queen sizes. All sizes of Sugarcubes are fat quarter-friendly, so it’s the perfect way to use up those bundles.
Tip: To create all of the layouts below I used Prequilt, where you’ll also find digital colouring pages for each.
Colours: WHITE (background), PERIWINKLE & CORNFLOWER, MELON & PRIMROSE, CYPRESS & ALOE, PANSY & CORSAGE
Small Throw Quilt
Colours: MODA PFD (background), LIMEADE & HONEYDEW, BAYSIDE & BREEZE, TAN & PEARL, PERIWINKLE & BABY BLUE, WISTERIA & FREESIA, 30s PINK & PRINCESS
Large Throw Quilt
*note that Duckling, Breeze, and Petal are used twice in the following pairings, so if you’re working with a fat quarter bundle, you’ll need an extra FQ of each (or substitute in similar colours)

Emily Taylor for Figo Fabrics
I used my fabric stash as inspiration for this next palette, and PreQuilt to mock up a version of the Sugarcubes small throw quilt in this collection of fabrics by Emily Taylor. It’s a great mix of pastels and bright primary colours, with some large scale and tiny scale prints, plus some subtle geometrics.
