    Loretta posted a link to an antique doll quilt site and there was a beautiful checker board quilt there that I just loved.

    So, I reproduced it for myself with different colors in my program. I was thinking of mixing and matching all different colors in one or just maintaining it as two colors.

    I don't like sharp contrast, so I muted it a bit. This design isn't for everybody, but for me it's appealing.

    They are all great but I tend to lean toward the blue and green one. Let us know what you decide and we want pics.

    Thank you everyone. I'm going to attempt to make one of the checker board blocks next weekend.

    But, I have all color variations.

    There was just something about the lovely indigo blue and white one from the site that really appealed to me.

    I'm leaning toward blue too, but what shade of blue??????

    :D

    Can't forget red. But, actually of all my fabric stash, the most likely option for me to make (so as not to go out and buy all kinds of fabric) is this yellow/gold/green color. It's not as nice as the blue, but it's a shade of batik that I have lots and lots of.

    I made one as close to the original as possible, but I am leaning toward teh steel/grays myself too.
