    Well, the outcome of my experiment doesnt only leave me speachless but also somehow blinded :oops: :lol:

    I wanted to know how different colors of the same print work for stack and wack.And I wanted to make a quilt with Kaffe Fassett fabric. Some of you recommended black for sashing but it looked to hard to me. With according solids its very,very bright.
    It sure will bring our black sofa to live and might even keep the cats off!?

    In the green corners I planed to applique a flower from the red print but there aren`t any well defined flowers in the print. Any other idea?

    I like it. I seem to gravitate to the quilts that others think are too bright. I may end up being one of those little old ladies in orange double knit pants and a purple t-shirt.

    I like it! Were you trying for a hollow block effect in the OBW border area? The shot from the distance definitely gives it a hollow block look. You were very brave to experiement like this and I agree, it will really brighten up your black sofa, in a good way. I won't hold out much hope for the cat staying off it though! They are known for their impeccible tastes so I have a feeling the cat will like it.

    Great quilt, love how you used your fabric. I'm a Fassett fan myself. I like his "paper weight" fabric.

    I made the fourpatch and the sixpatch blocks of the same print and then somehow tried to get it into a top, nothing else. Looked like a great idea at the time. On those green spots in the corner I planed to applique flowers out of the red fabric. But on the print there is no defined flower so I will see what I come up with. Maybe I just leave it empty. Might look overload :lol: :lol: :lol:

    WOW! I like that, especially how the outside blocks look like boxes.

    Nice.

    :lol: :lol: :lol: Not me! This was my first, last and only try with Kaffe Fassett "paper weight" fabric. Will go back to my 30`s prints to give my eyes a rest.

    I love it. I really like it when quilters step outside of the box and try something different. I think you did an outstanding job.
