    Is this too wild or what?

    I picked out these wild fabrics to make a quuilt with. My first thought was to make a double Irish Chain. Then I thought, hummmm maybe a Disappearing 9 patch. First off, I'd like you comments on the fabric choices. Is it going to be too much? Or too wild? And, which would you choose? A D9P or DIC?

    It will certainly be a lively quilt. I have a personal preference for an Irish Chain! So I will vote IC!
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    I vote D9P. These fabrics will make a beautiful D9P even though I hate green but love orange. It will still be beautiful.

    I think your lovely fabric will be set off best by doing a large D9P with the print as the corners, the lime green as the "arms" and the bright orange spice as the center.

    I would audition sizes of squares to get the best effect of the print.

    Love the colors! Can't wait to see it done. I'm voting for the D9P.
