changing my mind (and the design)

A while back I scored some of this gorgeous fabric on clearance.   I had planned on using it for sashing in this quilt, with blues and greens in the blocks. wpid-fabric-2010-03-10-02-00.jpg Here are my blues and greens. Aren’t they pretty??? wpid-bluegreen-2010-03-10-02-00.jpg I was thinking yellow rick-rack around the edge of the block would add some pizazz, but looking at it all together now I’m not so sure.  I think it’s TOO busy, and the yellow rick-rack will get lost. wpid-3-2010-03-10-02-00.jpg I once read on a fellow quilter’s blog that a lot of times she ends up not even using the original inspiration fabric.  That could be where I go with this one – I’m really liking the blues and greens, and am seriously considering just a postage-stamp quilt with those colors might be really fun.  The yellow tie-dye fireworks fabric might have to wait for another quilt, another day.

It is very cool fabric, Peggi! I think you’re right – the rick-rack will probably be lost with it. I love your colors. You are definitely attracted to greens and blues, aren’t you! And speaking of postage-stamp quilts, I’m working on a tutorial for one now:-)wpid-Cindi-Signature-small-2010-03-10-02-00.png
