Hello Everyone,

I am planning a new project. With all the projects that I have in the works, why not pile one more into the mix, right? In reality, I have been wanting to make this particular project for some time now. So I thought that I would start gathering my fabrics.

Here is what I have together so far. I love all the different colors and the sweet prints which are true to the 1930s reproductions. Many of you know how much I love these sweet little prints, even though I am a big brights fan!

This is the project from a Fons and Porters magazine. I really like the design, but better yet it is all strip pieced!! Although, I am most likely going to alter the border. The design of it hasn't been decided just yet though.

Here is my dilemma, you can see in the pattern that the 1930s prints are set in white and then with a solid colored triangle. In the magazine, you can see they used blue. I am not much of a blue person, but I still like it. My thinking was that I might swap it out for green.

So on the left is Kona Cotton Asparagus, on the right is Kona Cotton Denim.

Here are my fabrics laid out on the Asparagus.

Here they are on the Denim.

I would love your thoughts and am curious how many of you prefer green over blue and vice versa. So please leave a comment to let me know your thoughts.

Oh, and don't forget to enter my giveaway here.

Until Next Time...
