This is the design I’ve decided to use.
All of the chain blocks have the same three colors, a pale kinda ecru/yellow with two golds that are about the same value but have just a bit of difference. The star blocks are going to have different backgrounds, points, centers . . kinda scrappy but the points and background in each block will all be the same fabrics . . just in that block.
Once I got to playing with the design, I realized this is a good quilt for my guest room. I think the colors will work in there. The current quilt on that bed is brown and green . . a bit brighter than olive but I’m kinda tired of looking at it. Mostly my quilts are in the 60″ x 80″ range and are made to be given away or used as sofa quilts but I’m going to make this one bigger for a bed quit. If I make it right by the design, it will be 82″ x 100″.
There’s a chance I’ll swap out the straight borders for a pieced border but I kinda like the straight borders on this one.
As I was trying to figure out fabric yardage, I changed one of the colors so I would be better able to see which fabrics went where and I also like the black in there.
I’m not putting the black in my quilt but I do like the way it changed the look.
Have you decided what you’re making for the January monchromatic yellow quilt?
