I bought enough of both to choose later and then use the rest of #2 for my binding.

 

Love your fabrics.

Valerie, I love your fabric choices. Hope seeing all the rest doesn't make me change mine.

I was able to come up with some fabric that I think will work for a smaller version. It will be bright, but probably be a Quilt for Kids so that should work.

I tried to use fabrics from my stash but couldn't find enough coordinating fabrics in the right amounts so I found myself in the discount room of my fabric store.  This is what I found.  My background fabric will be the white pinstripe, fabric #2 & fabric #3 are the green and red fabrics and the light green piece on the top will be a 4" border.  My question is 'any suggestions' which should be fabric #2 and fabric #3.  I am anxious to see the finished product.  Thanks...... Peggy

Pat, very pretty!  I really like the hearts- so colorful!

Peggy,  your fabrics are perfect together!  I like the mixture of prints. I would use the red fabric for #1 and the green for #2 so there will be more of the red in the quilt.

Pat

Those are definitely bright but I think they are going to be pretty.

It truly won't make any difference which fabric you designate as #1 and #2.  These are really pretty.

Thanks everyone.  I am excited to get started.  I thought I was going to my son's softball game tonight but it got canceled so I guess I'll get all my cutting done tonight after all.  And maybe I'll get my Mystery Quilt #8 finally posted..

The Strip Tube Ruler is from Cozy Quilts. You can get it at their web site: cozyquilt.com.

 

Cool technique. But it was the strangest thing, as I backed out of the website a link to Missouri Quilt popped up with  Jenny Doan  doing a demo on using a regular ruler. Looked very easy and no need to buy the specialty one.

I already have the ruler and like it very much, but if you like the other method and it works well for you; then I say go for it. More money left over for fabric!

I have been enjoying the conversations and fabric choices.  Everyone has chosen beautiful combinations of colors.  I have two choices and can't decide which to go with.  Perhaps I will make two :-)

Cally, I missed seeing your fabrics before this. They are so pretty. Your quilt will be great!

Helen, I agree with you. Make two quilts. Both groups of fabric are so nice it's hard to pick just one of them.

OK, I changed my mind.  Every quilters prerogative!  The other fabrics I chose were each large enough to be a quilt backing, so rather than cut them up I went back to my stash.  This is what I came up with.  My quilt might be stormy instead of tranquil.

Helen, both combinations are beautiful.. I'd have a hard time deciding too.

Everyone's fabric is beautiful! I can't wait to see how this comes together.
