I never dreamed you all cared so much. It's that, or you are finding new and exciting ways to avoid housework. Which I am totally in favor of helping you do.
So after careful weighing of your opinions of my fabric choices, I am happy to announce that one of these pieces of sage advice was the tipping point:
So which was it:
A. You should go with the fabrics that you love because you may never finish the quilt if you're using fabrics you don't love.
B. I would choose the first one, because sometimes you are surprised when you use fabrics you don't like so much.
|And answer B it is!|
Also, I took into account that I would only need background fabric, so that made the answer even more obvious. Today I found a lovely blue with small brown polka dots that will look so modern Christmas throw it is scary. I only wish the fabric photographed a little better.
|This so doesn't look like the pretty aqua it really is.|
I also enjoyed the advice of Jennifer, who wisely pointed out, "If you don't love the finished quilt, it's a great gift." Or raffle quilt item.
But don't get too excited VBES PTO. I kind of think I am going to love it when it is done, and Greta will probably be long out of that school by then anyway, given my track record for finishing projects for ME.
Hey, can't go wrong with FABRIC! I love how no matter what I use, it usually comes out with me loving it.
glen: which is why I have so many I just can't give away......they are my babies!
Hi!!! Love your selection!!!! I am still deciding on my colors and background!!!! But I have a little time!!!!
i'm going to work from my stash and use lots of orange. now to decide whether to use white or pale yellow for the background. Guess it will depend what I see in the shop.
Hooray for using something that is not your usual style, and not only will Greta be long out of that school by then, she will prob. love the throw so much she will forbid you to raffle it off anyway. :D Love the dotty background! Can't wait to see it all come together.
This looks fun. Can't wait to see how it progresses. Love your choice.
