When I teach..many people say they can NOT decide on fabric options. It is hard, they want to LOVE it when it's not.. not just any ole LOVE IT.. but
I NEED TO LOVE IT
WITH ALL MY HEART!
... that... kind of love it
This is what I showed you the last few days... and I have LOADS Of feedback in the last few posts.. at facebook and at my Online Quilt Group
I decided that the sashing will really 'define' the color of the quilt. If I used the black.. the quilt will look black. If I use the red.. the quilt will look red.. No sashing.. not sure I'm on that page .
Here is how I auditioned.
I used 2.5" wide squares. Then if I didn't use the square it goes in my basket of 2.5" squares I'm sewing together into 5 x 5 blocks (yes.. that is for another post)
I laid red fabric underneath .. it's not cut. JUST incase I don't like it
Funky zig zag stripe
MULTIPLE black fabrics that have more grey
A brownish taupe.
Here is the real deal on this one. It was the last one auditioned before I went to bed. I thought for SURE it' was DA ONE.
When I work up the next morning (sound familiar?).. oh.. it was not ... unless of course YOU love it best.. do you?
Some mustard gold, tans and butterscotch (that makes me hungry...)
A fantastic linen I have... mmmm
So what did I learn about decision (or NOT decision) making on Friday night.
I was tired
The lighting was bad
I so wanted the right choice to be made THEN... but
Until I got up the next day.
I waited 24 hours...
Now I might be ready.
I also read this GREAT article on making decisions.. CLICK HERE to read it too!
