Dear Jane color ideas

I've been researching color ideas for my upcoming Dear Jane/Sylvia/Hannah quilt (which ever one I end up doing). These are actually Dear Hannah quilts, I believe. That's one thing that I just noticed about that design, besides the blocks being smaller, is that the background was black in the blocks which I'm really quite liking - gives a richer look to the quilt. I like the second example the best. I also didn't want to be tied down to only a few colors in the entire thing since I'll be working on this for years I'm sure and don't want to get sick of the fabrics and colors I'll be using - and I want to have full freedom to use anything out of my fun fabric stash! I have two quilt tops I would like to finish up before starting this but don't know if I want to wait :)

  1. Oops, don't know what happened to my comment. Anyway, the black is very dramatic and striking. I love it, but if I was working on it, I would get tired of it. The second example has more room "to play" with different colors and prints. (Personally, I prefer light and bright to dark.)

    If you want to start this, do it! Time isn't standing still. ;)
