    Is this too wild or what?

    I picked out these wild fabrics to make a quuilt with. My first thought was to make a double Irish Chain. Then I thought, hummmm maybe a Disappearing 9 patch. First off, I'd like you comments on the fabric choices. Is it going to be too much? Or too wild? And, which would you choose? A D9P or DIC?

    It will certainly be a lively quilt. I have a personal preference for an Irish Chain! So I will vote IC!

    I vote D9P. These fabrics will make a beautiful D9P even though I hate green but love orange. It will still be beautiful.

    I think your lovely fabric will be set off best by doing a large D9P with the print as the corners, the lime green as the "arms" and the bright orange spice as the center.

    I would audition sizes of squares to get the best effect of the print.

    Whatever you do this will be the koolest quilt. Love the fabrics. These colors are not my favorites but together they sparkle and will be great. Can't wait to see the finished product. BrendaK

    I don't think they are too wild. Either pattern would be great--which ever you prefer. I personally prefer the DIC, but don't know which would work best with these fabrics.

    I'm finding as I'm growing older that I actually prefer the wilder/darker colors!

    I am not a good person to ask because I like BRIGHT! I love the fabric and thing it would make a wonderful quilt in either pattern. I'd vote Irish Chain because I like the look of very traditional patterns mixed with modern fabric and I think this would fit that well.

    I love the fabrics and IMHO, I like the IC. Done in these fantastic colors would be awesome. DP9 is a safe 'in the box' type of quilt and these fabrics certainly are not 'in the box'.

    Picture this quilt as an accent piece in a contemporary white room! WOW!

    Those fabrics are fabulous, I'd buy them in a heartbeat. I think I'd go with D9P, you might even consider a DoubleD9P.

    Ooooh they are so pretty!! Either one would look great. If doing a DIC I think I would add white. I look forward to seeing what you decide!!
