My next quilt will be for a silent auction for Cystic Fibrosis. I am still in the beginning quilting stages, so don't want a huge number of pieces or triangles. The art teacher who requested this said neutrals, but that doesn't fit my color style, so there are none in my stash. I am leaning toward batiks or Moda swirls in jewel tones.
Do you think the qiad Jewel Box in moderate brights and jewel tones on a cream background would appeal to bidders? Not everyone has my passion for batiks.
It's so easy to choose when you know who the quilt is for, but this is driving me crazy. That and the fact that people will be examining my work closely. A regular auction is seen from a distance, but a silent is displayed with a sheet of paper in front of it for the bids. If I could work in blues, it would be more easily sold, but I don't care for blue, so I have none.
I'm going to need a new box of hair color by the time I make a decision. Help!
