    Still doing trials of Basketweave and am trying with larger pieces. That works, (BTW using starch is the bomb!) but thought I had it all figured out to go with one colorway - purple up to light green. Then just played and tried the rust print. I like that too! I'd already done navy up thru white as a first trial and liked that so I went to get some more fabric; ended up going completely different!

    So. between the "rusty" print and the busy all-color print which one wins?

    Busy or rusty?

    Oh, I truly LOVE rust/russet with teals and blues. It gives it such a warm burst of contrasting color. I have a French Braid quilt with the points in russet and the rest in teals. I vote for the rust!!

    Thank you all! Buying the FQ of the rust was the only time I've bought one with no immediate use in mind! Knew it would work sometime.

    I'm glad you all agree with my instinct! Will post when its finished!

    LOL LOL LOL !!!!!!!!! My daughter (usually my fabric guru) walks in and sees the layout and says, "Your NOT going to put the rust with that are you?!!?". I just said, "Yes, WE think I should!"

    I am one that does not believe everything has to match or blend. It is important to spice things up every once in a while. LOL

    Same here - it really makes the weaving stand out.

    I like rusty - it gives the design warmth and depth.

    It'll be quite a while before I can afford to make a bed-sized quilt of it, but it was fun to try the "set-ins"!

    Oh--rusty!! It makes the little flowers in the other fabric pop a bit. The busy is too busy for me.

    I love the Whispers fabric--I made a Triple Irish Chain with it. So beautiful.
