Too Busy? Will It Look OK? What Do You Think???

i LOVE this fabric...i got it free when i purchased fabric for my nephew's quilts last year...the quilt store was giving you a "store credit" when you spent so much ... so this is what i received with my credit.

I've been trying to figure out what to make with it and i've always wanted to make a log cabin quilt ... so, my cousin suggested i make one using this...blue on one side, the whites on the other and i'm thinking of a pale yellow for my center square.

Here's where you come in ... what do you think? Will it look ok? Is the fabric too busy? Is it too much blue? Will a pale yellow center look right?

Love your fabrics, Lisa - they will make beautiful log cabins - yellow centres, no sorry - perhaps a lovely bright pinky/cerise - oh, I'm silly - that's just me! Good luck!

The fabrics are lovely....do one block and see how it looks...you will soon know....Julies idea if the red would be good too I think.

Love the fabrics but have to join the others on ditching the yellow. I would agree with a cerise or red but I would trial first. look forward to seeing what you choose.

Well I'll be the odd one out, I've always like yellow and blue together, so as they say do a trial block. Love the blues, just perfect for a log cabin.

I think your blues would make a gorgeous log cabin quilt. They remind me of a set of china. I think your yellow idea is a great one. Blue and yellow look wonderful together. Yes, you could go with red or cerise (had to google that one) but in the end you need to pick what you are going to love.

Love the blues. I'm a red person so I would go red but...I adore yellow with blue. Make a sample and go with your heart.

Oh ABSOLUTELY! Blue and yellow are classics together. I have a blue and yellow log cabin quilt; it was a class I took and half the blocks are blue the other half are yellow and the centers are the light blue but I like your idea so much better! I can't wait to see what you decide :) Do you have a log cabin ruler? Makes life so much easier. Happy sewing

All the fabrics are wonderful. You could make up a sample block to see what it would look like.
