I've been looking at quilts on Flickr and found one that I think I like, and can easily produce. I won't use the name, because it's probably copyrighted, but I'm not going to reproduce it exactly anyway. It has simple strip-pieced blocks with the same two fabrics paired in each block. There are 6-7 pairs in each quilt. Here are the potential pairs I'm looking at.
My concern is that the quilts I've seen on line were all created from one fabric line, so that all the pairs go together, by default. Except maybe this? If I am doing my own thing, I may end up with a mish-mash. Red and Hot pink??
Anyway, here are six possible pairs. I like the batik swirls with the AH fab. I like the pink with the green.
Concerns: Will the white dots disappear adjacent to the white sashing? Is the peacock/orange too out of character? I like that blue/orange are complementary. Without them the whole quilt is too pinky. I think I can control percentages of each combo used, and where they land...
And for the record, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this.... but can't imagine doing it!! And definitely not with these particular colors..... but someday. She has just published a book, which I probably cannot resist buying.
