All in the fabric
It always amazes me that using different fabrics makes a quilt look totally different. In classes I have taken where everyone is making the same quilt they always look totally different with the different styles of fabrics and different placements.
Here is a quilt that I recently quilted for Jane. The piecing is very simple with 9-patch blocks, rail fence blocks and solid blocks but didn't her "Ocean Quilt" turn out nice. It was all in the wonderful fabrics she collected for this, it gives it an elegant feel. Now picture this same quilt in Christmas fabrics or maybe 1930's prints........... it would not be the same quilt at all.
