Just those pesky side triangles!

     The double hour glass layout is done, but I can't think what color the side triangles should be. I like on point quilts, but choosing the sides and sewing together is always a bit tricky. Have to do more thinking, but I really need that wall!

Wow, this is some eye candy and mind shifting:)
Dark setting triangles will add drama and impact, and a lighter tone will be soothing. Which effect do you want? I really like the fabric that has splatters of several of your colors.

It is always more difficult on a multicolor quilt. Seeing the design wall as light setting triangles gives you an idea of how that would work. I like light. I think dark might be too heavy and medium would be the problem of what color to use and would probably not look so great.

I am thinking about a yellow -- light goldenrod perhaps (I think see some bits of golden yellow in some of the prints). Would need to see it in person to be sure. Have fun auditioning! (and all four sides do not need to be the same -- maybe top and right side with one and bottom plus left side with another?)

Neat pattern and colours, I love the rich green in there! I'd love to see the different fabrics you put up to audition.

Nice blocks. Take a couple of fabrics from your stash, and put in the triangle areas to see if they would go.
