Decisions, decisions, decisions!

I have this fabric that I recently purchased on clearance and have decided to use it to make a quilt for my bedroom. The walls are a sage green and the curtains are brownish-gold. I have a touch of red in lampshades and other accessories and plan to add a touch of pink and blues.

My question is, "Do you think the black fabric looks out of place?" "Should I use it in the quilt or leave it out?"  I think it almost has an Asian flair to it but not sure.

Here's a closer look.

I have yet to make a quilt with large prints so this will be an experience-- from choosing a pattern to deciding if I want to add some solids with it.

I can tell I am going to have a lot of decisions to make. Let m know what you think.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting.


  1. I think it will really depend on the pattern you choose. You may need a couple smaller print fabric to really show off the big beautiful flowers. Too many large prints may be overwhelming but it really depends on the pattern.

  2. I like the black with the other fabrics a lot, but I don't like the dark blue in there.

  3. I think I would have to see the pattern before knowing if the black is out.

  4. I too would like to know which pattern you would be using and what background you are planning..I do acually like all the fabrics...but there may need to be a mix of smaller prints..

  5. I agree with CJ as far as going with the others. The black is a better fit than the dark blue. If you are a member of TQS (The Quilt Show), Jinny Beyer has a great lesson on color selection. I just watched it last night. It is a short lesson & not a full show.
