what a difference a day makes!

After standing back and looking for a day, I worked out what was wrong with this quilt top! And it was so simple to fix... I unpicked one light pink block that was glaring at me and replaced it with a pretty peach/brown one. It seems to all blend together a bit better now, and I'm much happier too! 

Quilt Top Stats:
Fabrics used included Anna Maria Horner, Kaffe, Denyse Schmidt 
and assorted others from my pre- modern stash.
My colour scheme was a selection of blues combined with brown 
with the brown values ranging from peach, orange, brown, and cranberry. 
Finished quilt top size - it's big -  2m x 1.75m!

  1. Oh so gorgeous! I agree, standing back and giving some time definitely helps. In the end I want to be happy with my decisions.. Your rail fence looks like silk tapestry from some exotic place!

  2. Such a comforting combination! I have all my strips cut out, just have to start sewing them. Family vacation last week, feeding grandkids this week.

  3. Really wonderful! I'm in the process of editing colors in my son's rail fence, too.

  4. Thank you, for all the above comments! I have loved making this quilt... it's such a fun & easy pattern, lots of versions out there now, and - the best bit - no two are alike!
    If you have been tempted but not made a start yet, I urge you to play along too! Linda

  5. Ah I see now which pink one was removed, I shall be going through the same process after making up three morse blocks today. Your quilt is full of great mix of fabrics - lovely.

    1. Thanx Maureen! I'm really tempted to try another one, maybe with a bit more of that cultural fusion mix.
      {note to self : think more texture & more movement!}
