What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start with something simpler and smaller, look for the right fabrics because they don't come around often. I really recommend buying at least 1/4 yard pieces of lots of different landscape fabrics. This way you have them available when the inspiration hits.

I am sorry, I mean Autumn Birches pattern.

Hi - this isn't the Autumn Birches kit pattern that was sold through AQS and RJR fabrics. This is an older watercolor quilt I made years and years ago. If you find my blog, you'll see the 'real' quilt that you bought. Cathy

But, the literature contains the photographs , those contain red and orange colors. But the fabrics provided by them have more blackish, so the contrast is nowhere to be seen. Sorry to trouble you. But I really require some suggestions from you.

Can you email me? cathyptp@wi.rr.com My blog has a page for the construction of the kit you bought. Did you see it? Yes, the fabrics I used had black backgrounds around the leaves, but that is cut away...
