Oh yummy!! The Cherrywood fabrics in blue & white would be delish!! :D

Joyce, who wavers between scrappy out of my stash or just buy the kit! :roll:

Judy, I think that would look spectacular in autumn colors!
Rachel, the only advice I can give you is to pay attention to your values. If you don't get a nice contrast in some of these pieces, you are not going to get a good appreciation of the detail.

I thought I was going to do mine in Civil War fabrics, but after auditioning several fabrics for a couple of days, it just didn't "feel" right. Now I'm going to try Autumn colors. I'm also going to use Marsha McCloskey's feathered star method--I hate paper piecing. The quilt would look spectacular in blue & white, too. I've got several blue & white quilts, so I think I'll go with Autumn (my favorite season!).

Nice to hear I'm not the only one having a hard time deciding on fabric Rachel. Although the scrappy look is starting to appeal to me, but might make a batik one. Oh brother, I still can't decide. LOL

I like your browns because I think they are so pretty.

I was having problems deciding on colors too... until I decided to limit my choices. I decided I'd use just one color, and a background color. So the idea is something like - use all shades of browns and 1 background. Or all shades of teal and 1 background.

I played a bit in Photoshop and made some pretty simplistic examples, but I've posted them in my profile. There's a green, blue, raspberry and purple.

I CALL THE BLUES!! LOL - no one else can use blues!

I was thinking about doing the easier one with primary colors with a black background. I thought that would look really different and my oldest son would love it.

You could try my color approach Racheal - I'm doing more than one :lol: Seriously though I am doing one straight from my stash so I will have the really scrappy look, the other is planned to match the colors in my new bedroom- cream, olive green, and brown. (Now I just have to kick DH in the tail to get the room finished before I finish the quilt) Also if I have enough fabric left in the stash I might try doing the alternate blocks too as a scrappy quilt for a different look. Wahoo - three for the price of one, lol.

BOM fabric SOS !!! 05 Jan 2009 19:04 #30652

I am having issues. If I don't make up my mind soon I will be making january's block in december. I was thinking all blues and whites. Then I came across this rose and beige. I really want it to be different but I just can't make up my mind. I also have these really pretty pastels with butterflies and dragonflies on them that would look so pretty. See what I keep doing?
HELP :!: :!:
