Auditioning for Swoon

I bought the popular Swoon pattern a while ago.  But other quilts and life keep getting in my way.  I'm committed to making my own Swoon quilt and I joined the Swoon-a-long, over at I'm a Ginger Monkey.


Yesterday I took a few minutes to "audition" the FQ bundle of Echo that's been screaming at me.  I love this fabric.  I eliminated the the two with pink, for this quilt, two FQ's had to go, after all.  This morning I laid out the groups of two I'm thinking of working with, on background fabric.  I eliminated  white and cream right away.  I think I like the first one, the coal background.

The second one, on charcoal, isn't bad, but I think coal has it.

I'm also thinking that most of these prints may be too large for the pattern, oh, boy.

Here's a Swoon quilt from Fussy Cut, you can see it's a large quilt.  Maybe this fabric will work. 

I'll have to think, some more.  What do you think?
May your bobbins always be full,
