  2. Hi Jeni, I don't know where the best place to ask this is, so I will comment on here and hope you read your comments. I know you are super busy, but I think you are also a super women, so probably read all of your comments..right :P
    I am a horrible fabric selector...I always get it wrong, and usually end up hating my project before I even finish it. If I was closer, I would come and see you in a class, but I'm all the way over in Aus, and so all I can do is follow your blog like a mad woman.
    I am about to begin a Farmers Wife Sampler (yeah, right?! I really need a new WIP like a bump on the head!) and I need to choose fabrics....what would you select? I've never not loved anything you have made...help?!

    1. Collections by the same designer are a safe, easy way to let the artist pick the prints that go together. Do you have access to pre-cuts? Layer cakes can be used to create any block.
      Also, the Color Wheel. Opposites attract is a great rule for colors. Yellow and Purple (think Easter), Red and Green (think Christmas.) Find an artist's color wheel and take it to the store with you. Some come with a red & blue plastic film that helps you determine value and dominance.
      Finally, contrast. The most beautiful fabrics can be lost in a mash of color if there is not enough contrast. But contrast requires a certain confidence because it makes your colors and piecing POP! And that Pop makes the quilt so satisfying & pleasing in the end.
      Here is a new Color Book by Martingale.

      Hope all of this helps! Oh and enlist a vocal friend to go fabric shopping with you, one who will say Yikes if you start mixing the wrong fabrics together ;)

    2. One more thing: the grass is always greener when you look at someone else's quilt. I bet we would love your quilts.
      Do you have a blog? Post your pictures up there and ask for comments on fabric choices, colors, etc. The blogosphere is full of vocal quilters (just look at me, babbling on as if I know anything...;) You have cheerleaders around the globe.

    3. Thank you very much! I had a blog, but closed it recently because I felt like I wasn't posting enough and it was just another thing on my huge list that I had to do each day! I really appreciate your help, and am now following your blog :)

  3. Oh, wow! I won! Oh, my! I am so excited! I'm sure this will become a prayer quilt--I just don't know who will be the recipient. Guess I'd better get busy thinking! Thank you so very much. It's so nice to feel some luck!
