    I have another quilt project, and am stuck for ideas. I am making a one for the Pheasants Forever benefit auction. I have printed panels and am trying to come up with how to put them together without overwhelming with my added blocks. Can you help me out with some ideas?

    I would do simple blocks around the pheasants....large in the middle, small in the 4 corners. Pick up at least 3 or more blocks per width of the panels. And use the colors in the panels. I think it would be beautiful!

    I found this: http://www.quiltersjoy.com/images/quilt.JPG

    I think you need a non busy separation fabric between the panels and your Bargello blocks. Your colors are beautiful.

    Thanks , I had printed that out too, and showed it to the person that asked me to make the quilt . But he didn't like it , thought that was too busy too; and took away from teh beauty of the panels.

    I think it is the yellows that are making it look too brite. maybe if I just use the browns and black that I have , it might look ok.

    This is what I was going to suggest too, maybe tone down all of the fabrics. They could blend together more and still hold up on their own without taking away from the panels. :D:D:D

    personally, i think it's very kind of you to do this and rude of him to say HE thinks that the design is too busy. be that as it may, what about log cabins in muted colors, maybe the colors in the panels.
