    OK, here's the deal....
    My friend Sara & I are going to be making a quilt for our friend's daughter's wedding. The bride likes those 1970's style aqua/turquoise & brown prints. This is what we are considering - a single Irish Chain, using those blues & browns in maybe Moda Marbles. Then, for the alternate blocks, I found some Michael Miller fabrics, in his "dumb dots" line, that are the right colors. One alternate block with polka dots, & the other with a print that will read a little darker. I ordered some of the M.Miller fabrics for samples, but, of course, 2 are backordered! Here's a pic of the one that came today, and a diagram of the quilt, with tan & aqua "standing in" for the print fabrics.
    What do you think?


    The backordered print is a denser pattern, more brown

    Your pattern looks beautiful. I made 2 quilts this last year in those colors for wedding gifts. They turned out really nice.

    Brown & turquoise is one of my favorite combinations! I love the heart--makes it especially appropriate for a wedding. Lucky bride & groom. What size will it be?

    If I didn't have a complete math melt-down, it should be a large queen size :wink:

    Oh I agree the colors are going to work and the heart in the center is a perfect touch for the quilt.

    You will love it.
    I just finished 2 quilts in T and B, one was the pioneer sampler and one was done in a modern pattern. They both came out just right.
    The pioneer one is posted in pictures, not a very good picture since I cant get my scanner to make a good clear picture.
