cant decide on a setting..

So, this is the quilt I made the night after seeing the Amish Abstractions exhibit at the De Young. I was actually surprised at how many solids i owned, once i had pulled them from The Great Wall of Fabric. I've been playing with this on the Design Floor, and have been struggling with the setting. I now have 16 blocks, so i can put it 4 by 4. I also might put it in strea of lightening. Dunno. Glad to be part of the blog!

I love the colours of this quilt - especially the tiny green slivers!
I also like this setting - love the yellow!

At the risk of sounding like a quilt groupie...I am so envious of your getting to see the quilts in person!

Love the colors in this...

Yes, I did ( see the quilts), Yes, I did ( piece the tiny green slivers. I want to do one that is specifically inspired from the book, but this one, I forgot to say, is the Steroid Version of the one with the five hundred little log cabins. There was a bench in front of that one, and it was a good thing, because when I saw it i had to sit down.
