Testing 1 - 2- 3...

I took the kit that I showed this morning and did a test run to see how successful the kit is.  I do consider these kits to be starter packs and that they definitely need a little input from your own stash.  Since some of the prints are larger, not every kit has the same motif in the print so there is no way a kit can be a 'paint by number' - if you are old enough to know what I'm talking about.  I do my best to put a good assortment of values and colors in the kits.  I used 196 of the 200 pieces in the kit for this sample and it isn't perfect.  I would definitely go to my fabric stash and look for a better value/color piece for a couple places.

I will jump on this one myself....just for the variety of fabrics that I don't have!

Hmm. There are some fabrics in your sample that I would never have considered for a colorwash quilt. The effect of them all is very nice, though - you use colors so well. I'm curious - what makes a colorwash quilt "perfect"?
