    Fabric Choices - I think I did good

    Making wedding ring quilt for my youngest son getting married in April. Finally got to shop for the fabric. Soon to be DIL wanted teal, both wanted more modern, no flowers or stuff. I wanted gold in it. So here is what I bought - ring fabric for centers of rings, light teal for back and small wedge pieces, gold for the rings. I had the gold in my stash, the other 2 I got today on sale for 2.oo a yd. I like them and I think it fits the bill and did not hurt my limited budget too much.

    Nice combination, it will be a beautiful quilt! Please post progress as you go along. Happy sewing.

    I am going to be making a DWR with black, white, champagne soon. I'm nervous about it. I have a couple things to finish up here soon, then I'll be working on the DWR (still choosing fabrics, too). The wedding is in July.

    That is going to be wonderful! Seeing other people's ideas stretches my imagination. I love this combination and never would have thought of using it in that pattern. Now I am going to have to take a look at my stash.
