Design Wall Monday - 1/17/11

So I am stuck on my scrappy yellow project. Which cornerstones to use? 
Jewel tones
Obviously these are a little large. I didn't like these as much as I thought I would cuz I loved them in the red quilt.

Black
I was surprised how much I liked the black but is it too much?
Yellow


















Subtle but more in keeping with the monochromatic look.


Now I'm thinking maybe I should have gone with just sashings and no cornerstones. That is no longer an option because I've cut up the fabric.

So I am going to make some more burp cloths for my granddaughter, Paige, while I debate.

I personally like the black cornerstones-the yellow fades into the blocks too much. I love the black and white fabric for sashing-never would be that brave myself but love,love,love it.

I agree with Kathy - I like the black cornerstones best.

Great quilt. Definitely the black cornerstones. They just make the whole quilt pop. I love that sashing fabric.

Tha black is the winner to me too. I like the multi-colored ones but this is more a Monochromatic with the yellow with Black accents.

I like the black too.

The black does give it a dramatic flair. The jewel tones caught my eye too.

I like the black best - I think it brings out the brightness of your yellows, rather than washing them out, like the yellow cornerstones do....

I like the black best too. Both this and the red quilt look great!
