Color Changes Everything

The other week Fat Quarter Shop sent an email promoting this quilt....


I love how this looks.  I keep going back and forth putting the kit in my cart, closing the window, and repeat.    Then I decided maybe I'd just get the pattern (since I have a little fabric stash).  Hmmmm, when I see the fabrics on the cover of the pattern, it does nothing for me.  I probably wouldn't have looked twice at this pattern if it weren't for the picture above.  I'm not saying it's wrong, but it doesn't appeal to me. 


Isn't it funny how certain fabrics/colors can catch your eye but not others?  I haven't purchased the pattern...yet, but I maybe soon.

Oh I agree - I would not have looked twice if I just saw the pattern. That is one thing I like about Quiltmaker magazine - and some of the other mags - when they show the quilt project in different colorways. It makes my brain go "a-haaaa" and then there's trouble...
