Today, I want to show you how I audition different fabrics to finish a scrappy quilt. Sometimes I will know what I want to use as a main fabric before I start, but with the variety of scraps I was working with this time, I knew I wanted to save this step until after I had the centre eight-patches completed.
Here's some of the fabrics I pulled that I thought might work, in no particular order:
|Option 1: Olive green with stars|
|Option 2: teal blue|
|Option 3: tan|
|Option 4: bright blue|
|Option 5: Print on light tan|
|Option 6: Print on light brown|
|Option 7: light tan|
PS So, after laying these out & taking photos, I actually did the math to figure out how much fabric I need for the sashing. Turns out that I don't have enough of any of these fabrics, so a trip to the fabric store is in the works. Stay tuned to see what I actually decide!
