    I totally love your color choices and your layout blows me away. It's the best one I've seen! Right away I could see the outer triangles in the prints as you mentioned. In my mind they match the blocks in color that they are next to so that shading effect is repeated in the triangles around the outer border of the quilt. The prints are not necessarily the same just so the color value is.

    i agree that the plain triangles should be something other than white. i've seen them match the color of the block nearest to it.
    I love this idea. What a wonderful job you did!
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I want to do one so badly but want a quilting buddy to do one with me and I can't get any takers. They don't want to invest the time it takes and I know it takes lots and lots of time. Your blocks are wonderful, I am in awe.

    I love the colors making a sunshine and shadow design. It is amazing! Can't wait to see it all together. I have only made block 1! I will continue to work on it, you have given me hope that I will finish one day!

    Thank you all so much for your coments! I like the idea that others might start or continue their DJbecause of this thread.
    Whenever I had a hanger I went to this board to look at each and every DJ post. :-)


    I started to sew the blocks together and can say for sure, that this will be my first and my last quilt top with half inch sashing and cornerstones............and I will have even more time than I thought to think about the fabric for the triangles!

    I just looked at the layout again and the darker block in the center is in the perfect spot. Ones eye is drawn to the center because of the darker hue, but the "arrows" in the "shoot" your sight to the concentric "circles" of color. Wish I could see this IRL G

    Dear G.

    You know where to find me and you are very welcome at any time! :-)

    The center block is not quite as dark in real. I collected 1930`s prints for more than a year and the great thing is that most of them coordinate.
    I started with purple in the middle. First round in medium purple, second light purple. Then blue, green, yellow, orange and red. Also first row medium color, second light, orange only one row.

    I started to sew the blocks together and it is terrible tricky to get accurate half inch sashings and corner stones......it will take me forever. I am sure glad I made each block with the according sashing and my experience with minis helps me with the cornerstones.
    Greetings, T.

    All of the good descriptive words have been used already....so i will just say WOW !! and Congratulations !! I think given your incredible work and obvious color savvy - you will make the best possible choice for the triangles. Please please be sure to show us the finished quilt.
