    Need your advice

    Hi Everyone,

    I have the Bittersweet jelly roll and want to make a Phoebes Flower box quilt. There are so many beautiful colors in it, darks and lights. My question - what color of sashing would you use? Something that wouldn't get lost with those dark browns? I'm anxious to hear what you have to say.

    How many of you have made this quilt?

    I'm not familiar with that line, but making Phoebe's Flower box is next up on my quilt list.

      That is such a beautiful line of fabric. I have not made a flower pot but have made this quilt with that fabric.smbittersweet.jpg

        My color choice? That beautiful deep red rust - my colors for sure.
        Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
        it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

            Love the Phoebes flower box pattern, have made a few used light sashing for some and darks for others, personally I prefer the look with the darker colors, I would pick one of the deep reds/burgundys.

            Procrastinate. It frees up time to quilt!

                I have made the Phoebes Flowerbox out of fabrics in my stash; love this pattern! I wish I could make another one, because it went together quickly and nice!

                I would puck up the Green/olive color in a deep shade to make the other colors pop!

                  Is that a Grandma Mary's 5 patch pattern?

                    I really don't remember where the pattern came from, probably a magazine. I do not know Grandma Mary but I guess I could have used her pattern.

                      I agree with Shermur, I would go with a dark green that will make all of the reds and other colors pop.

                        I saw a pattern with that name; uses a jelly roll cut into squares/strips with a center square. I haven't made one yet, but it is on my list. I like yours, whatever it is called; the colors too!

                            Keep forgetting to say; I like the dark burgundy/red OR the dark green.

                              Where can you get the Phoebe's Flower Box pattern? And the Grandma Mary's 5 Patch pattern? They are both really attractive!
