I found It

Yesterday in the mail came the fabric I ordered from Cottage Quilts. They had several of the Fancy Free Line which is what the border fabric is. and it was on sale. We all like that. So I ordered 2 yards of a dark green which I already had some of. This light green print which had a little red flower in it and this plaid which just looked good.

Really came quick clear across the country from Fresno, Ca.


When I saw this light green and put it up on the board under the blocks it seemed to make those blocks pop out. What do you think?





Now I want to show another picture with two different beiges for the outer setting triangles . Which looks best? The light or the more of a gold? Then the plaid will be the inner border.





I don't have enough of the beige that I used for the BG in the blocks but do have two other light ones that I think I can mix them. I do have enough of the more gold. It was part of the TB club fabrics which I didn't use.


So what is it Ladies? Want to get going on this. Have other things to do for Christmas. Don't we all.

Eileen,
I think the little floral for the alternate blocks is perfect! You're right..it does make the blocks pop.

Hard to tell about the setting triangles. You have me stumped there.

I really like the light green floral for the setting blocks. You're right, the blocks really pop. I think I like the lighter fabric for the setting triangles. It just seems to go better with the rest of the quilt. But then again, the gold is pretty with the plaid inner border. Tough choices!

I vote for the gold setting triangles, Eileen.
