Work In Progress Wednesday :: Florence

So a few weeks ago I won (WON! It was a fabric miracle I tell you!) a complete fat eighth bundle of Florence from The Knotted Thread - thanks again to Jennifer and Maureen for such an amazing giveaway! So I think I've figured out an easy pattern to maximize the fabric size  - I'm going to make 9" rail blocks by cutting each piece into 3.5" strips and then joining 3 to a block.

So now I just need to pick an accent color. Want to help? The top one is Kona Medium Gray.
The bottom one is Kona Coal and naturally I like both. Right now I'm leaning towards the darker one but I'd love to hear your opinion! Happy Wednesday everyone :-)

Linking up with Lee from Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.

  7. Hooray! They'd both be great. I'd probably choose medium grey.

  8. I really prefer the medium grey - I use coal almost all the time for grey when I quilt, but I think its 70% the photo and 30% that the Seattle rainy season just started that makes me think the lighter is better :)
