    Default Cutting Corners

    I use a lot of white in my quilts. I decided to use a solid where I would normally use white. The pattern is Cutting Corners and the fabric is Citrus Another Point of View by Windham. I'm just not sure I like this one. I think I'm going to do another with white.

    That's pretty and reminds me of a tropical area, so bright and pretty.

    I really like this! Beautiful colors- I love the idea of using color rather than neutrals for the background. I defininly need to try it.

    I love it, and would be happy to take it off your hands if you're mad at it.

    very nice work, personnally I stick to white or black but this would be great for a younger person, my opinion that's all.

    I must agree with the others......very summery, tropical, beachy feel to this quilt. I love that you are trying new things and inspiring others. How do you chose your "other than white" background colors? I want to do this with some sashing on a scrappy quilt of many colors, but question which color to go with all those choices.
