Sheila, what is the background color on the large daisy fabric?  Is that white or light pink?  In my humble opinion, I think one light background used on all blocks would look great with these six fabrics interchanged as the contrasting fabrics throughout out the quilt.

Nancy, the background color in the large print is white.  I "graphed" out the patterns & drew the prints today while waiting in the dr. office.  As of now, I think January Asterick square will be the stripe w/ purple stripes - next the Wonky one I have it as bright pink w/ the large print. February squares: Balkan Puzzle block is lavendar, stripe & the small flower print. the chucky chevron is yellow/gold background w/ the wide stripe as the large flower print then one small triangle will be small flower & next one the stripe. What do you think...i do agree that some white may look ok in some squares...I will ponder that until I start these!

Sheila:

Dara Beth, I love your blocks!  Is that purple or pink as your background fabric? Really like the colors.  Here are the fabrics I dug out of my stash...what do you think?  Do I need to add a white as a baseline for all blocks or do a hodge-podge with these 3 solids?  Any help & suggestions would be reatly appreciated!

 

Sheila,  I love your fabrics.   It will really pop.  I especially like the large print you have.  That is something that is lacking in my stash.  Yellow is my favorite color.  Yea, I know I have very little yellow in what I've done so far.  I'm trying to use up some stuff and still get it 'springy' enough.  It is that time of year when the season just gets me down and I need a bright pick-me-up.  Personally, I would go with the fabrics you have if there is enough to do all the blocks.  I might add a bit of white, but only if you want/need to tone it down or the patterns we have yet to see need it.  I can't wait to see what you do with them.

It really isn't that much fabric.   She is using "strings" for the blocks.  Very pretty blocks.  Just watched the videos.  Of course I still need to do Feb. blocks....LOL>

Nana,

I just watched the Videos too. Not as bad as I thought. When I saw you needed 30-40 strips, seemed like alot.

Wow, I thought you did Feb blocks already. Think I have my fabric picked out, but have to work the next 4 days.  Might get some cutting done in the next 4 days. :)
