Un-Match It Up

Are you a matchy-matchy sort? I don't think that I am! In fact when I was selecting fabric for my last few projects, I found myself trying to use as many different fabrics in the applique as possible. I find that this method results in a quilt that has depth and many layers of discovery.

As I was selecting the fabric, I'd ask myself if there was another pink in the same color range but perhaps had a different print or scale to it. What sort of questions do you ask yourself as you are selecting fabrics for your quilts?
