yesterdays post, the jury isn't hung, nor is it out. Trouble is, I'm still on the wall about this one. We have...ahemmmm...drum roll please: 10 votes for the leafy red; 7 votes for the dusty blue; 4 undecided/whatever; and 5 in favor or more shopping.
And when I read the comments(which were really very helpful) I can see that it both goes and doesn't go...with either fabric. So probably the best thing to do, is shelf them for abit longer and keep looking for the perfect-doesn't-overwhelm-nor-fade-away fabric. It'll be rought but I'll do it....bravely! And if this wasn't complicated enough....LOL...guess what I found last night??? Yup, another package from the Aunt in KC. It contains 130 6" bow tie blocks, and they are pieced from pretty much the same fabrics! I laid some of the bow tie blocks out with the 9 patches in between, but I can't say it does much for me, visually. I'm beginning to have a pretty good idea why they have lanquished since the 1930's and 40's and why they made their way up north to me...*G*. Yup, she probably like color in her quilts also....imagine that???
