This quilt started out with a lovely Phillips Jacobs fabric capturing my attention first.Then I needed to decide on some fabrics to work in with it.
I definitely wanted to include lots of spots, loving the spots lately. I also wanted a variety of soft neutral prints for the background sections, and little 'pops' of plum here & there.
There are some combinations that surprised even me, a few AMH new conservatoryfabric mixed up with Kaffe & Keiko Goke. And using those light grey busy pastel Kaffe prints as a neutral seems to work too with the plum accents.
It's a real work-in-progress at this stage, with things changing along the way. I'm still undecided about going with a light or dark inner narrow border and I may unpick a couple of the centres and do a spot of fussy cutting. Nothing definite yet, just making one block at a time and going for a sort of "mix and don't match" look.
These wagon wheel blocks are quite big blocks, finishing at 16 1/2" and I've got four now. I'm probably going to make nine all together and then gather them all up and make a busy scrappy quilt! Love to hear your thoughts on my 'printsonprintsonprints' version.
