    Examples

    I haven cut hem all, but here are a few examples. I like the ones that the second fabric is closer to a solid. Do the busy blocks take away from quilt?

    Thanks for your input.

    Four prints is distracting. You tend to lose the pattern of the block. I learned this the hard way! I like the blocks best with one print and white, but you can use two prints as long as there is high contrast between them. Otherwise, the block ends up looking like the dog's breakfast.

    Examples of disappearing for patch

    I am discovering that I prefer solid color and one print, but I had to try...

    The one with blue and black looks better.

    Gosh! I can't believe it... I think I am actually going to scrap it and do something else. I love the line of fabric though. Great for my FIL.

    The first thing i looked at was the black one....the contrast is just attractive. The one with more colors would look nice if you use solid sashing between the blocks to break the busyness
