Thank you Barb for the embroidery floss numbers! That's a big help - I'll be able to get those. So fun to see everyone's fabric!!

I just ordered a package deal from Quilted Twins. The picture they showed was yummy. I had gone to the fabric store yesterday, without my list. I was really there to get a bigger piece for a back.

I bought three yards but only two would be suitable. I got so confused and besides men were waiting on me to get in and out of the fabric store. So I just bought this entire package. $97.00.

I Love orange!! I switched my ORL from peach and aqua to orange and royal blue. The orange is so much fun!

I love these. I will need to go out there and see if my store has them too.

[QUOTE=sewbizgirl;8154175]Nice Tuesday Morning find! Beautiful color gradations.



Carol, your fabrics look nice but one thing stands out to me: The 'tans' look like a darker range of neutrals. I would probably pick a bolder color, if you want the same impact as Bonnie intended. She's got 4 bold, saturated colors, and then many neutrals. Looks like this quilt will be lots and lots of neutral. And then lots of orange.

Thank you Sewbizgirl for the input. I really want to keep the tans and wonder if they should be my neutrals and then introduce another color to replace the white tone on tone. I need to add more of the very dark brown, but wonder what other color might work for that 4th. strong color. Ideas??

Well, I got paint chips today and will try and pull fabrics tomorrow. Don’t really like orange as a color, so will try subbing golds. Going to do about a hakf size, maybe with some borders added to get it to a twin size. Blue, green and red won’t be a problem. Post pics after I pull some fanrics.

Carol, I covered up the white in your photo and didn't like it as well. And I recall someone referring to Bonnie saying to stay lighter with the neutrals in this quilt. So if you keep the white, then add various shades of brown to go with your brown and tan, I think you would have something comparable to Bonnie's model of the lighter and darker orange.

Thanks Lisa, that is what I will do; it seems that there should be enough contrast that way. I appreciate your thoughts.

I think I would use them for the neutrals, just staying lighter than "a brown paper bag", as Bonnie says. For another bold color, think primary or secondary. How about gold/cheddar?

But... at this point we are all just guessing! If you use fabrics you really like, I'm sure you will like your quilt.

I think these look really good together.
