Color Blocking + Chicopee : :

Color Blocking + Chicopee

Last night I had decided on a solid plan for my Chicopee Triangles. After a few more blocks and finally settling on a dark grey sashing in this Pure Element Moonstone Solid, I thought I'd spend today whipping up a new quilt top, easy!

Chicopee with Grey

Well, here I am right now!

Color Blocking + Chicopee

Color Blocking + Chicopee! What do you think ?

Thanks so much for the help, in advance!! You guys are THE BEST!! Maureen

I love it! I think it totally works!

MBMathis said...

I really like that aqua/turquoise. Gives a good pop to keep the eye moving across the design.

Karen P. said...

I love the aqua & the mustard ones best! :)

Jodi said...

I love the gold/mustard or aqua/turqoise! To me, the gray is too dark, and the white, too white! :-) LOVE the Chicopee triangles!

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

Those two really brighten up, don't they?!

Lisa said...

Aqua is my vote, to me it just makes everything else pop!

Levans5 said...

love all the colors.. I really like the gray with it too~ Awesome job on the project! It's going to be beautiful! :)

Angela Nussbaum said...

I love the way all the colors work together and with the fabric... why not have a little fun and mix up your shashing and use them all?!

Lyanna L. said...

I think it looks great w/the color blocking and all the colors! Looking forward to seeing it finished.

Ingrid Echard said...

I would do the gray with an aqua back, or binding.

Doreen said...

love the gray...is there a pattern available?

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

That was my exact original plan, which I think would be lovely, but I'm in the mood for something a little more fun and bright today. Hopefully I won't regret it!! :)

kristin said...

Yeah I like the gray best too, makes the prints pop out but is soothing too...love the idea of an aqua or mustard binding! Can't wait to see this sewn up.

It's gonna be awesome:)

Anita said...

Love what you are doing! Are you going to use all the different backgrounds as sashing? It looks really cool that way! Completely modern and different from the original quilt :)

Carolyn Gibeaut said...

I love the gray as it brings out all of the different colors. I think the turquoise would look fantastic for the binding to really set it all off.

Christine said...

I think the aqua, mustard and gray look so wonderful. Could you use all three?

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

That's exactly what I'm thinking?! Right now I'm making all my blocks and reading everyone's input before I completely decide. :)

Christine Slaughter said...

I love all the colors! I think it would make it really modern to have blocked sections of sashing colors...just like they're laid out. I'm not usually a mustard/yellow fan, but with that fabric line it really brings some brightness! Absolutely love the aqua!

Laurel09 said...

I like the aquat, mustard and gray. I'm not so fond of the white. If you want to do the color blocking, do you have an orangey-red that would work well with the beautiful chicopee colors to replace the white?

Beckyjopdx said...

why make a choice when you don't have to? love it! that mustard color is lovely....(runs off to buy mustard kona....)

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

It's actually AGF's Pure Element Empire Yellow Solid! I love it!!

Selfsewn said...

I do prefer the colours and not the white if that helps!

Stacy said...

Love your blocks! I really like the way the gray sets them off, but I also like the idea of using all of them

pasqueflower said...

Lovin' the triangles. The solids you chose compliment the Chicopee fabrics beautifully!! You have the artist's eye.

Anonymous said...

I love the grey and think it would be cool with a few pops of the aqua and yellow. Personally I would use only the grey and bind in the aqua (but I'm not very adventurous). Not a big fan of the white. Beautiful work!

Katie P said...

I would usually pick gray, but I love the aqua and the mustard. I think if I had to pick one color for front I would say the aqua for sashing, mustard for binding and gray for the back. But you could use any of those colors for any part of the quilt and it would look great. Love the triangle!

Allie's Mom said...

I love the aqua and mustard colors best. But if you used the grey, aqua and mustard in your sashing I think it would be beautiful. The white is to stark and I'm not liking it. Can't wait to see the finished project.

Kira said...

This is going to be such a lovely quilt - color block awesomeness!

Tammy said...

Absolutely gorgeous. I love those colors and I adore chicopee....

Pat O said...

I vote for the aqua .... it does make things pop. The white is too stark, the yellow looks muddy. The charcoal is VERY nice .... it goes in the sashing! :-)

Jean(ie) said...

Aqua and mustard! I say go for the unexpected! They really make the reds pop.

Patricia said...

I love it but would leave out the white too.

Katy Cameron said...

Loving the colour blocking approach, that is with the whole mixture of colours :o)

Kristan said...

What a unique idea! Go for it, I think it will look great!

Paskiaq said...

Love it!

Holley said...

I love the aqua! Makes it pop! As usual this is going to be a lovely quilt!

Jeanne said...

I have the Chicopee fat quarters and lots of solids. Thanks for the idea! Now I like the yellow best, but I'm with the others in using all three colors! Did you make up that pattern or did you buy it? I would love to use my Chicopee fabric and do the same thing, if you don't mind.

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

I don't mind at all! I did make it up and have changed directions several times as I've been making this quilt. It looks so different now -- lots of solids made their way into the mix!! :)

Annette said...

It will be beautiful no matter what you choose! I love all the colors so I'm no help at all!

Jeanne said...

Thank you for letting me copy you. Will you give instructions on how you made it, please? It is very eye catching. Thank you, Jeanne

Michele said...

I think it is really great and this was a terrific idea. I can't wait to see it finished.

Elsa said...

Love these blocks Maureen ~ like the grey background the best. It doesn't take away from the blocks. You could use the mustard on the back and the aqua for the binding ~
You inspire me!

Alison/Eyespot Designs said...

Great colours!

GO STARS! said...

Love the color block idea. It draws in more colors and steps outside the normal one-color sashing.

Ella said...

I think I like them all but the white.

I think they all look gorgeous! Could you use a combination of all of them? And block them like they are in your layout?
