    I'm looking for photos of completed quilts using this pattern

    This is Miss Rosie's Simple City. http://www.homespunhearth.com/Simple...lt-Company.asp


    I know I saw a version of this with French General fabrics (the reds and browns were dominate if I remember correctly) but I can't find that image at all now. A web image search also only shows basically this one quilt. I need a few examples of other colors/fabrics to jump start my creativity with this pattern.

    If you have more sophisticated search skills, I would love to see what images you can come up with. Thank you.

    personally I think it needs strong fabrics to show the piecing like the one on the BlogSpot by Miranda D. In the first two posted, I can't even really differentiate the piecing. Miranda's just pops!

    luvspaper, yes, exactly. The soft pastel one is very pretty but looks like a sea of soft colors with no specific shapes. I saw one sometime in the last year or so that used a few darks to make part of the blocks "pop". I have the pattern (Miss Rosie too did it in all soft colors). It will probably require creating it on graph paper and coloring in various pieces to get an idea.

    I know that I've seen it in French General, too. I have looked and looked but can't find it now. Hopefully, someone else will have better luck but I'll keep looking.

    Thanks Susann, I think it was a quilt kit from Fat Quarter but I can't find any trace of it now. When I found it originally, the kit had long sold out so it was really just a web page floating out in internet space.

    I agree. It is a little wishy-washy for me, as I too prefere the play with light and dark...''chiaroscuro''. I actually didn't realise the pattern was so dynamic until I saw the last quilt of Miranda's. It reminds me of Mondrian's painting, Broadway Boogiewoogie in those colours.

    I love the soft tones of older quilts, lots of pastels, but the whole quilt got lost in that pattern. Especially for $8.99.
    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.

    I would prefer stronger colors. Pastels can disappear.
