    I picked up these fabrics to do the disappearing nine patch. I am wondering it I should use a solid color in the middle instead of a print. since the center will be the small square once cut up to the disappearing nine patch..thoughts...do I have to many prints...should I use a solid? The yellow beans seem to stand out...maybe that one should go to.

    Maybe do a test D9P block and see how it turns out.

    Yes, I agree with the others, a solid would be a good idea!

    How about a solid blue since there are so many blues?

    I found another fabric in my stash for the center...not solid but very small print. That should work, I think it will balance the colors.

    In my opinion it needs another yellow fabric.

    I searched and searched in my stash and no yellows... :( I have so many fabrics and don't dare buy anymore. My problem is that I have bought so many prints but not many solid colors...I am learning that I need to buy fabrics for a quilt in mind and not just buy because I like a fabric or that its on sale....its amazing how quickly the stash builds up. I need to get going and make some more quilts.
