    Default Help! New, confused and I need to know what goes with this?

    I am a new customer and a new quilter! I just purchased the Bumble jelly roll by Tula Pink and a solid greyish layer cake to match it a little, to make a quilt. I looked and realized that its kinda large scale prints and it really needs a medium or small print to balance it out (see? I watch ya'all's videos so I know a tiny bit about this stuff!). Can you please look at the Bumble jelly roll and let me know what you think would go with it to make the pattern not totally be the entire focus of the quilt or if you know a quilt that I can make that is not too hard, that will not make it so focused on the Bumble pattern only or do you think that using just that jelly roll will still make a nice looking quilt alone? Open to all suggestions!

    Is the gray layer cake a solid? If so it should make a great quilt. Like the new tutorial on the T Block, jenny just put out.

    The shop girls don't come in here, but can I suggest a summer in the park. I think that would be beautiful.

    I made a quilt called Layer Cake + Jelly Roll = Quilt. It is on page 20 of Jenny's tutorials. It was easy and fun to do and was really pretty when I was finished. I used a Scrumptious layer cake and a Scrumptious jelly roll.

    Yes, it is a varying solid layer cake, meaning it is in different shades of gray. I was thinking that it might be interesting contrasts to just plain grey but now I question whether I should just get a solid grey layer cake or use this one and a smaller print to add to the bumble print that is smaller scale.

    You could do the Summer in the Park Revamped. The solids wouldn't be all the same, but in the same family and would be really pretty.

    Welcome to the forum!
    I would email customer service. If you do not need to start this project today, have them go to the shop girls and pull some fabric choices to assist you. CS will be happy to do so. I work in the shops on Saturdays. Not every line is in the shop when the Precuts get posted, there are delays between the two. It never hurts to talk to CS. The forum does not have people always at MO* who can always answer your questions, although there are some pretty smart cookies here. Good luck!
