Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
or are a whole lot of the patterns in the quilt magazines these days, using such tonal fabric with so little contrast that you can't even tell what the pattern is until you look at the diagrams?
I find this kind of annoying, I can buy a blanket for lots cheaper than buying fabric and making a quilt if I want something that's virtually all one color.
I guess they are trying to showcase a fabric line, but nothing shines when it's just different size patterns of the same color fabrics throughout the whole quilt. I almost tossed my latest (shall remain nameless) magazine after looking at the first couple quilts because of this, luckily after those few there were some quilts with interesting colors and nice contrasts... so I didn't call them up and demand a refund right this minute for wasting my money on fabric ads disguised as quilt patterns.
I'm done with my rant now, carry on.
