Size:  1.74 MBI traced 5x5 chalk outlines so how would that look doing 10x10 block instead of 5x5, of course it wouldn't be falling charms LOL! back to first base

    can you get a third fabric in maybe the pink or blue colors? that might help. I personally love all the purple. but that is me

    No such thing as too much purple! If you want to break it up -- use some black or white like you see around the edges of the flowers or even a little of the pink or aqua. I didn't see your earlier post - if you're fussy cutting squares, you could easily border them in one of the other colors...maybe I'll try to find your other post

    LOVE THE FABRIC. I missed the other post. If I had the fabric, I would use a pattern called BQ2. It would be perfect with this fabric. PM me if you have any questions!

    Some white would make both the aqua and the purple pop.

    I like it -- I too would add white to the mix.

    If the chalk outline is 10 inches, it will be Falling Layer Cake and an original. Aren't layer cake squares 10 inches? I think the outlines pictures have enough turquoise to contrast with the purple pin dot.

    I'd add more purple print ..... 'cause I like purple ..... and maybe some black to put some pop to the aqua and purple. Your aqua/purple flowered fabric is fantastic!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    You could do Warm Wishes pattern instead of falling charms. When I have large focus print I do warm wishes pattern...available free on internet.

    I have just finished cutting out 5" squares from my stash to do my first falling charms. Can't wait to get started on it.

    Good luck to you, Dianna

    I read your first post and suggested to cut squares instead of fussy cut. Maybe I thought fussy cut would mean you would cut around them and applique. Sometimes my brain doesn't work just right.
    I like the idea of using black with your two fabrics.
    I agree with others, not too much purple. Whatever you do it will be beautiful.
    Maybe look on utube or is it youtube. Suzanne Mac Neil has a video showing how to make a 5 minute block, can be made to look like a cathedral window quilt.

    Beautiful fabrics! If it were me, I would cut the print at random. l love the turquoise in the background. Perhaps if you used a little of the fuchia or the black (or is it navy?) to break up the purple.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I'm not a purple person so I would add more turquoise, bright pink, and black, really mix it up.......why limit yourself to 2 or 3 fabrics is my motto,

    How about adding black and making the flowers into the shadow box style with the other purple as the background?

    Hey, you're talking to a Baltimore Ravens fan here! No such thing as too much purple. But maybe try some black if you want. It works for us!

    I would pull the pink out of the flowers if you want another color. I didn't see too much purple though!

    I think some of the turquoise color in a solid would look great with your purples.

    Since I love purple, I think it will look awesome with just the 2 colors.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I'm with the purple brigade, you can never have too much purple, and purple and turquoise is a perfect combination. A turquoise tone on tone would be a nice addition.

    Why are you fussy cutting? To get a full motif in the center? personally, I'd not waste the fabric, since you only have two fabrics.

    I can not believe this. I read the photo date in the corner that says 2013 10 30 and thought what happened to your camera to give you a date that far in the future. Horse Hockey---------------the first day of November is tomorrow. (it's early Thursday now) I'm lost a couple months back, I guess.
