Questions from Lea...

Lea was over today with her latest project...purchased from amitie at Darling Harbour. A pattern  by Red Mumma called Chain Reaction...it had a few great variations too. It also looked really good in pastels.
She is using a collection of Kaffe Fassett prints...some from the show...some from Jackie at Canton Village Quilts...some from her stash. With a nice black with white pindot for the triangles.
Lea is a little unsure about her placement....so here are some pics...what do you think?
What about these 4 patch blocks...coordinating or contrast circles? She would love some input...

Tell Lea she's done a fantastic job with the placement. It will look amazing.

As far as the 4 patches - they both look great but I have a preference for the coordinating.

Fabulous use of Kaffe! Thanks for the link too. This is a wonderful pattern to use them in. As far as advice, they both look wonderful, but I think it boils down to a matter of preference. Does she prefer a higher contrast? If so, then she needs to go this direction. The other choice, give a more "romantic" feel, which is beautiful too. I would love to see it with the triangles in place, that might sway my opinion either way.

Lovely fabrics. My preference is the coordinating as I feel it will have more flow and draw the eye towards the design. Contrast will still look good though.......... as someone has said - it's all to individual preference...... Hugz

it is a great pattern, i have also seen several versions by the girls at the shop and all look good. i think lea's version is looking good and i think the four patch look ok however they come, they just fit in with it all because there is so much happening! it does also look good with plain circles!
