I've been collecting some Valorie Wells fabrics since this summer... and I know there's gotta be a quilt in here somewhere.
It can't be too complicated because the fabrics are really bright and busy. But I kinda want to do something slightly more exciting than my usual "lots & lots of little squares" motif. I found this pattern in a Fons & Porter magazine, and thought it might work really well.
I was thinking of using the busiest of the fabrics in the center square, then the brown polka dot fabric in the middle layer, then the bright colors on the outside layer.
And I found this pattern in a more recent Fons & Porter magazine.
I was thinking of dividing up the fabrics between the browns & brights and using half-square triangles, not the half-rectangle triangles as shown.
So what do you think? Diamonds or Squares? Something else entirely? Should I give up on these fabrics... let them marinate in the stash for a while?
