What's up next (2 blocks done photos)

Recommended Posts

Are you talking about variegated in the white areas? Certainly in the border and sashing it would work. I have a thread called French Country, Signature variegated that has blue yellow and white. I think it would be too distracting in the white background. That should be white on white especially if you do something like McT or a close stipple type. Just my 2 cents. Very pretty....is it applique or print? I'm assuming it's applique, but if it is, you are a saint! Wow!

I might be odd man out here--but the applique looks quite contemporary and modern even kinda art nouvoe looking--I might go with the varigieted yellow--if it is soft and not too jarring--I like to put the unexpected in some of the more contemporary quiltsIf the designs are from the victorian era--they did everything to excess--go with the yellow!! Just my opinion--and it is yours--so you can do anything!!

I'd use a very pale lemon thread. Not quite white and not quite yellow.

You could use a matching green in a thick thread on the sashing -- doing an embroidered type of look with leaves.

I'd stay with matching thread on each applique colored patch and the background white. A large scale quilted design might have a chance of showing on the border fabric.

I think either white in the white or...a very faint yellow in bottomline weight might be okay too. I would save the variegated for the border.

Thank you all for your help. I went with the white on the white, blue in the blue and a variegated green on the leaves.

I will post photos tomorrow. It sure looks nice, thank you again for all your help.

If you click on the photo, it will take you to Photobucket where the picture is posted. Page back and you can see a couple of close-ups of her blocks. I believe (from looking closely at the pictures) that she has done some gorgeous applique'. Penny, I just love this quilt. It is beautiful. Love, love the colors. Can't wait to see the finished picture. You rock!


Best regards,
