Five and Dime

In my last post, I shared two of my recent quilts that utilize the super easy Turning Twenty pattern. Another easy pattern is called "Five and Dime" by All Washed Up Quilts. In the last six months, I've made two of them with different color ways.

I wish I could tell you what the fabric is for these two quilts, but I bought them at a time when I wasn't paying attention to fabrics and their designers.

Quilt #1

I love the yellow fabric that are the two main vertical columns, but not sure how well the other fabrics work with it.

The two columns seem obnoxious and oversized, at least they do to me. I have a feeling that I won't really like this one until I quilt this one. (I'm taking these two quilts to long-arm on the 19th at o2bquilting)

They're not big quilts - 45" x 64"

Any suggestions for quilting designs?

Quilt #2 -

I'm a bit happier with this quilt and the color combination.  The fabrics were in a kit that I purchased at Quilt Cove in Eagan.

I picked out the fabrics for Quilt #1, so I continued to question my ability to pick out fabrics.

My journey to being a great fabric mixer is going to be a long road.

That's so funny -- I love the bold columns in the first one because they're so striking! The columns in the second one seem to fade into the rest of the blocks to me. It's all subjective. I say, do what looks best to YOU, especially if you're keeping it for yourself! :)
