Fabric Choices

Now as we are finding, choosing your fabrics is the hardest part of any project, let alone a project that is a mystery to you.

As for myself despite having made this pattern before and owning enough fabric to open my own emporia
I still had to go and buy some! and then I didn't use it!

Choosing the fabric is always the hardest and most time consuming part of any project;
making the blocks and assembling the quilt will be easy after this.

For this project...

Fabric 1 is your background...
make it a plainish one, blender, batik, tone on tone or small non directional print .......light or dark, its your choice

Fabrics 2 and 5 are your feature fabrics they have to work well together.
If they don't look right in a 4 patch with each other, try another combination!
This is where you can have a bold colourful print.

Fabrics 3, and 4 are to support 2 and 5,
look along the selvage of your feature fabric and pick your colours from there, one slightly darker than the other....
This is where blenders, tonals, batiks will come into their own.

Fabric 6 is going to give you some ooomph to your colour choices.
If you are going for a light background, 6 needs to be the darkest of your choices.....
That does not mean it needs to be almost black.
If you are using pastels that would obviously be wrong..Choose a darker tone of the colour range you are using

and if you have chosen a dark background 6 needs to be the lightest.
which also means it does not need to be white...just that no 6 has to be the lightest of your colour range.
