Yellow Dilemma

It’s Cindy reporting in today with a yellow dilemma. I’m getting ready to join my Grandmother’s Flower Garden Blocks and I have two yellow prints to choose from.

In keeping with my 30’s inspired blocks, both prints are designed by Darlene Zimmerman. The print below is called “Sunshine Garden” and it has triangles surrounded by tiny dots in a random pattern. It’s a gold/yellow print on a white background.

My next print is called “Southern Belles” and it has teeny, tiny x’s and o’s in structured rows and columns. It’s also a gold/yellow print on a white background.

So…I need your opinion on which print looks best. Do I go with:

A. “Sunshine Garden”


B. “Southern Belles”

I’ve got plenty of each fabric so I can use one print for the front and one print for the backing.

Thanks for keeping me on task…I vow to finish this quilt this year…well, I mean hopefully this year…I’d better get to work and start making hexagons!

      Thanks, Sandy! Sunshine Garden for a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt…it might be the winner!

    Hi Cindy! My vote is for Sunshine Garden, too. Whichever one you choose will be fabulous, though. They both match well – it just depends on what look you want. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    They are both equally pretty, but I think #2 would let your hexagons show up better, Just my opinion.

      I was thinking about this as well. I don’t want the fabric to take away from the hexagons which are very colorful and were a lot of work. I appreciate this thought, thank you!

      Thank you, Barb! The flowers took a lot of time so I want to be sure they are the focal point!

    Sunshine Gardens co-ordinates with the look of the 30’s prints and pattern. If you can’t decide, I’d go with that. Pretty. How far are you on it in the past 2 weeks?
