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

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

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

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

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

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

  7. 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?!

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

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

    1. 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!! :)

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

  11. 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.

  13. 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 :)

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

  14. 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.

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

  16. 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!

  17. 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?

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

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

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  22. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  23. 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!

  24. 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.

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  27. 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! :-)

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

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love it but would leave out the white too.

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

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  33. 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.

    1. 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!! :)

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

  35. 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

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

  37. 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!

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

  39. I think I like them all but the white.

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