    Out of my comfort zone with the colours

    I picked the fabric because it was different to the colours I normally go for. Tha pattern I think is Buz Saw .... Not sure how I am going to quilt it yet !!

    Life doesn’t get better because you ignore reality. It gets better when you accept reality and learn from your mistakes.

    I love those colors and what you did with them. Proud of you that you stepped out of your comfort zone. If I'd have bought those, they'd sit on the shelf because I'm not as brave as you are. Perfect pattern for those prints. No quilting suggestion but just wanted to tell you how much I like your project.

    You've got a good block pattern going and you'll have one vibrant quilt when you're done! Good for you to go outside your comfort zone!

    I think you did a great job with choosing the fabric and the pattern.

    Oh very nice indeed. Those used to be out of my comfort zone too but that was long, long ago. Now I love all brights.

    I love your quilt. It's really fun! I think it needs straight line quilting (just my opinion)

    really love your colors
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Great quilt. It looks as though it is square. I think that circles would be great to soften the angular look of the quilt. Or, you could do a square within a square within a square.

    The pale blue & white fabric grabs me, but I'm afraid the rest are "out of my comfort zone" too.
