I will be mixing other fabrics into this quilt -- not exclusively using Vintage Reserve. I once took a class on scrap quilts from Roberta Horton. I had brought lots of fabrics to the class, but had a bunch from the same fabric line. She proceeded to use me as the example of what NOT to do -- that being to not ever make a quilt exclusively from one fabric line. The fabrics are too matchy and all toned the same -- and the result is that the quilt lacks excitement and punches of color that make it interesting.
I have found that her advice is generally true. Just look at many of the quilts that the fabric makers feature when a new line of fabric comes out. They are often too focused on featuring the fabric and not on making a beautiful quilt. I recently made the mistake of making a quilt all from one coordinated fabric line. It was from a Whimsicals line called Lone Star Farm. I had over-purchased a boatload of the fabric and definitely had to make something out of it -- which I did about a month ago. But, unfortunately the resulting quilt is VERY drab.
I made the same quilt pattern several years earlier -- also using a Whimsical's fabric line. However, the difference was that I picked several reds and neutrals from my stash for the corners of each of the blocks. With that simple substitution the quilt is much more exciting and pleasing to the eye!
