I bought 1.5 yards of each of the colors (pink, purple, orange, green-more lime, aqua and navy) to do some type of log cabin or rail fence (see the one here about mid way down http://www.generations-quilt-pattern...t-pattern.html ). I really like the rail fence one and it would be a lot easier than the log cabin.
This fabric has some sheen to it so I was wondering if it stays like that after being washed? Also, I need a black or really dark gray that would go well with this fabric (if it holds it's sheen, it would need to be similar). Any suggestions? One thing about this line of fabric, I saw a preview quilt made with this fabric and the colors were totally different. The preview colors were deeper and more rainbow looking. The actual colors are more mod-70's. The green is very lime/avacado, the purple is more of a brownish plum and the pink is a little off as well.
Okay. I just did some rearch to find the image I saw as a preview for this fabric (I found it from a google search of rainbow quilts a few months ago). I couldn't find the web page but found the exact image here on our board (Rainbow log cabin quilt quilted and finished. Apparently, it was a quilt made several years ago --it is gorgeous. It is sad that somebody used this image as an ad for the Moda Simply color fabrics. Now I know that my quilt will not turn out how I was hoping. That is disappointing. However, I am simply in love with catchergirl01's rainbow quilt. Seeing it again has now swayed me back to the log cabin.
