Here are a couple more shots auditioning solids. Some quilters don't like to use solids, and sometimes I DO...because it gives a great place to break up the busy-ness of scrap quilts, and when quilted, solids show the texture in wonderful ways that aren't seen when the top isn't quilted. What looks flat unquilted, gives alot of WOW when it is!
So here you have it...crazy puss in the corner blocks on a medium blue, or crazy puss in the corner blocks on a pumpkin rusty orange. Any Takers? Both of these are from the stash and I have enough to do the whole top from either of them.
I also have the same civil war green that I used for my string point star, but then this quilt would match it? :c/ Not sure I want that. But here is a pic of that one... http://quiltville.com/6ptstringstarclose.jpg
So what does the jury say now? And can you see sometimes why a solid is best, even if quilters aren't so excited to work with them?
