Here is what I have come up with so far. Not sure about the green or the metallic in the upper right. How do think its progressing so far? The picture are printed onto June Taylor Sew-in colorfast fabric sheets. I think I want to do a pineapple block wall hanging,similar to this one maybe?http://melinful.blogspot.com/2011/01...itzgerald.html the one at the bottom. Or this onehttp://quilting.about.com/od/picture...ple-Quilt.htm. Another one http://barbarapolston.com/tradition_birds_fly.html Anyone have ideas for a wallhanging that would compliment the fabric I printed.?

Your fabrics are lovely, but look to be all "medium" colored to me. I think you need a nice contrast, darker or more saturated would make it pop. Good luck, anxious to see the finished project.

I like the colors you have picked, but how about adding a bit of lemon yellow to balance out the bright green?
Go for it, girl!

Thanks, I did notice that after I had taken the pics. I think adding a few darker tones and maybe burnt oranges and a few golden yellows are in order. This is why I love this board, it's like you have your own built in design team.

Does anyone have a block that would make a gorgeous wallhanging that they would like to recommend. I am second-guessing the pineapple block. :lol:
