Quilting

I finished the next baby quilt top (looks just like the one I did previously). This one will be sent out for someone else to quilt. One time of that experience was enough for me! LOL.

So, today I started cutting the fabrics for my next quilt. I found the pattern for the quilt in a Quick Quilts magazine. It's pretty muchly just squares. There are 12 different patterned fabrics and then a white base. The patterned fabrics are cut into two size squares (larger 7 1/2 inch squares and smaller 4 1/2 inch squares). Then to each smaller square white strips are added. Then these are assembled.

I'm not sure I'm sold on all the fabrics yet. But hoping once I add the white to the mix and spread out some of the ones that I'm questionable about...hopefully they will work ok together. My other concern is that some of the patterns are on a white base and I'm wondering how those will stand out with the white added. I may have to add a border around the patterned fabric before adding the white if I really want those to pop. But I'm nowhere near ready to start putting it together yet. Spent quite a while ironing and cutting the fat quarters today. Will save the cutting of the white for another day. And then I get to actually start SEWING (imagine that!).

Anyways, here are some swatches of the fabrics I've chosen. What do you think? If there is one (or more) that doesn't coordinate...which one(s) and why?

I like them all, if there is one that doesn't quite fit, IMO it would be the grey and brown polka dots at the bottom left. But hey, I can picture them all in a quilt together though!

Good luck, you have more patience than me!

I hate cutting out pieces for quilts. I truly think that is the worse part. I love the fabrics except for the one with white flowers. The background almost looks black instead of brown.

I think the choices are pretty! I like the splash of the aqua in there.
