Laura Flynn My motto is “The more fabrics in a quilt, the better! It is easier to pick 10 reds than that 1 “perfect” red. Not every fabric can be the star and not every block has to be “the best” because everyone gets a neighbor and we all look better surrounded by friends. Final advice: only work with fabrics you love. Life is too short to work with ugly fabric.”
