Fabric Pull

So as I mentioned yesterday, I am so super excited to take the Quick Curve Ruler class at the Small Town Quilt Show in a Big Town Way next week!!!   I can't wait!!  I have wanted to make a curve quilt like this for so, so long.  It has been on the list for a while.  But now with all of the pressure building of my first real curve quilt, I can't choose what fabrics to do it in.  A little help please . . .


Option 1 - I have been saving this stunning Aviary bundle for something super sophisticated and chic.  I think this pattern could look so very classy.  The black grunge would be the setting triangles and the white grunge would be the background.  (Again, I love grunge!!)


Option 2 - This beautiful new Anna Griffin bundle I picked up at market.  It is called Pippa by Ana Davis and I so love the colors!!  Wouldn't this just be so soft and sweet.   The background would be the perfect Bonnie and Camille Dots and the setting triangles would be the Architectures print by Carolyn Friedlander.


And Option 3 - Just to shake it up, would be the fantastic low volume prints from Road 15 by Sweetwater and then using a grey solid background with red setting triangles.  I think this could really pop and be oh so much fun with the great low volume mix-up.


So what do you think, do I go for chic, sweet, or fun???

Have a Happy Quilting Weekend

  3. Option 1 is just marvelous. Modern, yet classy.

  4. I am currently in love with greys, yellows, and a bit of black - so of coarse I choose option 1 - love sophisticated.

  7. I'd go with 1 or 3, with 1 being my personal favorite. I've made several Quick Curve Ruler patterns and I think they look best with solid backgrounds. I'd just be worried that the dot as a background in option 2 would hide the curved piecing. The contrast of the prints with the solids in options 1 and 3 will really show off the piecing.

    I'm jealous that you get to take a class from Jenny and Helen! I've spoken with Jenny on the phone when ordering rulers for my LQS, but taking a class from her trumps that. She is really nice! I know you will have a great time!

    And don't stress about sewing the curves. With all the QCR patterns you cut everything a little larger, sew the curve then square things up before joining the units. Everything goes together so beautifully. You'll do just fine and whatever you make will look great!

  8. Love them all, but agree that the red in option 3 would be awesome.

    Option 2 is my favorite pull overall, but for some reason I think it belongs with a different design.

  9. My favorite would be #1 but a very close second would be #3.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Option 1 or 2.
    The curved lines may be a nice contrast to the 'hard' colours of option 1.

    ReplyDelete
  11. The like the Anna Griffen bundle (#2) really lends itself to this pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  12. would go with the Aviary bundle think it would look great with this pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  13. If you go with #3, you might want to pick a gray that has a little darker value. It doesn't have much contrast with your low volumes. I love all your fabric pulls though.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I would go with option 2. I think that curves would be so interesting in these shades. Everybody is doing a curved design with option 1 color now. I would love to see you do something totally different.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Number 2 for a different type of look with the pattern! love it!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like the last option best. But that's just my style...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Love the 3rd option, but not for this quilt. I think the top option would set off the curves the best.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I like option 1 the best. The other two just look to bland to me.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think option 1 is my favorite, but I love them all!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Option 2, but trade the dots for that white grunge in option 1

    ReplyDelete
  21. chic for me, would never have put yellow with pink but it seems to work but chic is so very chic

    ReplyDelete
  22. I like the first two options. My favorite fabrics are definitely the Sweet one(Option2). I would choose a different setting triangles fabric though, because I want them to pop. Can't wait to see what you decide.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I like option 3 I think it would be stunning.

    ReplyDelete
  24. If this is something you have always wanted to do.... I personally would go with the fabric that will last the test of time. Option 3 are classic and never "out of style". Just a thought if this will be a heirloom for you!! Can't wait to see the finished quilt!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh number 1 please. Can't wait to see it!! :-) :-)

    ReplyDelete
  26. All good options, but my first pick would be #1. Good Luck picking, hopefully that's the hardest part. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I really like the fun bundle, but the first bundle, chic, would really make a statement. It would be striking!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am a huge fan of yellow....so my first choice would be #1, but I would also be really interested to see the low volume choice made up!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. They are all lovely but I like the first one for this.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Option one would be stunning!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Love the color combo in Option 2!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Chic luv the look and I would love to see a picture of it finished with that black grunge. It looks raven black on my screen I bet it will be gorgeous

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think Option 1 would best suit this type of quilt. The yellow and black would be very dramatic.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Option 1 would be gorgeous!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I am going for Option 1 but I sure would keep Option 2 together for future considerations. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Option2! Although I think really you should make all three! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Definitely Option 1 - Classy & Chic - Dramatic, too. If you're going to do the curves, let them Stand Out, not fade away!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Black and yellow is always great, but the red and low volume would be SO interesting! can't tell what your are doing though... looks like the pattern doesn't have curves, if that's what you're making.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Because the Aviary fabric has such large, bold patterns, and is so elegant, my feeling is that because the cuts in this quilt are relatively small, the beauty of the fabric would be lost, and therefore I would go with one of the other selections and save the Aviary for a pattern that would showcase the prints.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Our local quilting group recently did the Metro Rings pattern. I like both Option 1 and 2 but recommend using a background fabric that doesn't have a dominant print. It may drive you nuts if when putting your pieces together the print doesn't line up. The grunge background in Option 1 would be perfect! Just my 2 cents worth!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hello, I like number 1. I am in the middle of making a quilt with these colors, I hope mine will look as gorgeous as yours will be. I'll check back to see what you choose to do.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have to agree with what some previous comments say about losing some of the wonderful detail from the Aviary prints in the small pieces. You would waste that lovely combo on this quilt. I think the scale of fabric patterns on #2 is good for this design but really do not think the white dot would work well. You are going to end up with these beautiful open spaces ripe for some awesome quilting and the dot would end up competing with it. Plus the dot doesn't seem to have the same "feel" as the other fabrics in the grouping. You could do a soft solid pink or to give it a bit more life, use a light lime green for setting triangles and the grey for the background. Would totally give the more traditional fabrics a different spin!! Can't wait to see what you do!

  43. Fun! I love Sweetwater, Road 15, low volume, gray and red! It's a win!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Option 1 definitely! chic and sophisticated and very pretty:)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love anything Sweetwater, but you have three good options there. Hope I get to see your work this coming week! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Option 3 is my favorite. Love those fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I like the Chic but how big are those prints? They make not work because of the scale.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I agree with comment #50, except I'd go with the low volume option. I think that red would be fabulous!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I'd go with Option 1--this quilt needs contrast to show off the amazing piecing. Your fabric choices are wonderful! (I may just copy them since I have that pattern, too!)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I like them all, but I would pick 1 because I love the colors and it would look so chic. But really all of them are great.

    ReplyDelete
  51. The first option would look absolutely amazing. I wish I had those fabrics in my stash!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Option #1 would be my choice.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm not sure why exactly but option 2 would be my pick.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I would go with option 2. I'm making the same pattern for my niece's wedding quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Option 2 soft and sweet would be my first choice. But you couldn't go wrong with anyone selection.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I vote #1. Or #3 with red as the background instead of setting triangles. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I think option 1 is beautiful. I love the grunge fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Option 3 would not only be fun but gorgeous, too.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Cant wait to see what you chose!!! I would LOVE to see the low volume! (But any time you say red I'm all in!!!)

  61. Hmmm... It's a tough call as they're all great. If I HAD to choose, I think I'd choose #3. :) Enjoy, whichever one you choose!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'm voting option 2 as well, it is subtle enough but not too BAM... I love the contract of colors.
