    Default Re: Make a "Mountain Lily" Quilt with Jenny Doan

    those with camera phones take a picture, then go into edit picture on your phone,
    your looking to use the slider to change 'hue' . The colours all change. its up to you if save or not, personally I dont.
    hopefully this method does not upset anyone, but does help choosing quilt colours its not an exact process but gives an idea. it is amazing how colours change quilts.

    I thought of Summer Breeze for this too!

    I was thinking shades of purple, like mountains...not sure about this one. Lots of pieces to cut and lots of snowballing.

    I rather like this one. Yes it is a bit fussy but I have a bunch of white 2-1/2” squares and a whole lot of jelly rolls That need a purpose. I also made those quarter square triangles by accident while making a sampler quilt last fall. I mixed up in my mind Jenny’s crazy 8 method of making HSTs and her method to make 4 HST. Quarter square triangles is what I got. I agree the green is a bit intense but it goes with the jelly roll she chose. this would be a quilt where I would work on it a little bit at a time.

    I like this one! Agree with a lot of the ideas here on this one. Claire, I like your idea of a light blue, too. The green was pretty intense, but it did match the fabric line which reminded me of Summer Breeze also. I was thinking about a scrappy quilt - using lighter greens of a similar shade and hue or 30's prints would look really good, too. I also agree with it being a bit fussy with all those little snowballed corners, but I may give it a try someday down the list.

    Love the idea of 30s fabrics.
