My Next Project

No picture of the project because this one might be a mystery for a retreat next you.  But, I can show the fabrics I might use.  This quilt needs a light background and a dark background, a light and dark of one color and an accent color.

Could use this:


There seems to always be a demand for purple and gold quilts (LSU and school colors for my niece’s kids).

Or, I could use this:


This is probably a better choice.  So much not my colors but . . they’re in my stash and they have to be used so I can buy all those Dimples fabrics!  🙂

    I vote for the second set, too. After your post about dimples, I was on a large fabric site. I’m sure you know the one located in a ski state. It’s incredible how many dimples there are. I’ve used them liberally, and they make me feel good. I could hardly restrain myself!

    in the first set i think the dark purple is too strong for the light purple. try substituting a medium purple and use a medium green for the accent color (think Spring pansies)

    Yes, definitely the second set for me. I just love autumn colours, they are the colours of the leaves I can see from sewing room window right now.

    The second picture may not be your colors but they sure are mine! And I find I tend to work with colors that coordinate with the current season so they would definitely be my pick.

    It will be fun to see what they turn into.

    Geaux Tigers! I am actually wearing my BCS T-shirt from the January 2008 game today! I can understand making it in purple and gold.

    If you need a home for the second set of colors I would be glad to take the quilt off your hands. I love them!

    I am just catching up on your blog after being away from a computer for a few days. I love the first set of colors, however I ail form Vikin gcountry and my high school colors were purple and Gold!! Also just what is the big fabric shop in a ski shop. If those dimples are as awesome as my daughters 🙂 then I surely need some.
