    Here are the fabrics I'm using for the wedding ring quilt I'm starting this week. Wish me luck , first time doing this pattern!! I do not have the fabrics for the corner pieces, just the arcs and the lightest one is for the background. Not entirely sure about the background one but we'll see how the arcs progress. I think the corner pieces will happen as the arcs develop.

    These are really more green than the pic shows. I tried out the traditional way of piecing the rings and centers but said NO WAY to my mom in law. So I decided on Quilt smart/Eleanor Burns. Yes, I will post as I go!

    Wow, fantastic colors...I love turquoise..it just pops when used with other colors, and knows how to "lay low" when it's the dominant color!

    When I washed and prepped the background fabric I discovered that there was way too much purple in the background for my taste so I looked and looked and have as a back up a soft tie die look turquoise solid. What do you all think?

    PS Fabric has been washed but not starched or ironed.

    This tie dye will give a softer muted look

    This batik has a lot of purple that is not showing up, will be dramatic, not sure about it.

    I think the turquoise would be too blendy. Purple and teal really are amazing colors together, I think it would be beautiful if you stuck with the batik.

    Thank you for the imput. I'm beginning to think that it is the circles that I don't like! I'm going to make up an actual square and see if that changes my mind!

    My soon to be DIL knows about the quilt and she sews also, maybe I should ask her which she prefers...............?

    I have another batik somewhere in the basement in a box, going to dig it out.

    I'm not crazy about the circles either, while I adore the fabric, the circles will probably be too much for the wedding ring, as they're already circles! Definitely don't go blendy - contrast is what appeals to our eyes... which is probably why you don't like the circles... too many curves, no contrast!

    I agree with Ladygen's comment about Circles with circles!
    Although I do like it better than that first solid....
    The colors on the second make everything POP in your other materials...
