lesson in auditioning fabrics


  1. I really like the top wing in this post. I think you have found a winner!

  2. Paula, I realy like the top orange wing too. the movement in the fabric makes for a nice "wing" with feathers and it does not conflict with the tail stripes.

    Between the bottom photo and the next two photos, I would say the purple-ish one with the colors more towards the tip of the wing. It will compete a bit more with the tail feathers but that is okay also. I have learned that with one of Kim's quilts, it's best not to second guess youself too much as once it is all finsihed everything flows anyway!

  3. Hi Paula,

    I think the top one is a better choice as the bottome one is a bit too greyed. To me the bottom one would be more like a butterfly wing design.

    Enjoy the process you are doing a great job, but trust your gut as it will be your quilt!
