Anyway, I have been testing some options for my crosshatch quilt.
I feel the grey is too wishy-washy. It looks drab next to the bright colours and white. The bluey-grey fits in better. So I am going with the bluey-grey.
First decision made, now I wonder about which colour to put where?
I actually wonder about ditching the white altogether so I get a more cohesive look. It is difficult to judge when I haven't kept the pieces in proportion (- it's hard to cut up too much fabric for testing when it's $18 - 20 per metre). In the third option, I wonder about swapping the white for the yellow? I feel the 'colours' are too far apart to have the effect I am after. Or maybe I ditch the blue-grey for white? Maybe that's interrupting the look?
I took my million and one questions to Helen's and ended up with a decision! The yellow has gone altogether. This is where I am at now ... I think.
