Sisters Choice

Sisters are wonderful, and mine are the best! Here we are in glorious black and white, just like the Sisters Choice block pattern: Les, Karen and Deb, the Gillis girls.

The Chamisa palette I discovered in yesterday’s blog offers 17 hues, which gives the quilter a nice range to consider when designing. The traditional Sisters Choice block can use about six or seven hues, so I created four different block treatments, after observing the original black/white/gray version for value placement. I placed the blocks on a colored background which hints at the final sashing choices possible. Liberties were taken in the green version as I planted a more intense april green among the colors. Tweaking is allowed when the palette gets a boost for the better!

The next step? That’s the really fun part, finding fabric to drop into the plans. I am finding myself intrigued by the first color plan here. It is a little bolder in terms of contrast and intensity. That pretty much describes the sisters too!

Do you have a favorite among these four?
