I'm trying to figure out what to make for future baby and am trying to use up fabric that I have in my stash and patterns.

I was thinking about making this "Snake Charmer" quilt:

But using the Color Wheel fabrics from this quilt I made previously:

Other changes I wanted to make was to switch some of the curves around and make it one continuous "snake" instead of 3 separate ones.   

Does this sound like a good idea?  I'm so indecisive lately I can't decide whether the colors will flow smoothly or not! 

Any thoughts?

I can picture the snake charmer quilt working with some of those colors but, personally, I'd leave the snakes unattached and make each one a different set of colors.  It looks like you have enough of blues, reds and yellows to make each snake one of those colors.  I'd do each snake from light to dark around and, of course, then the dark would meet up with the light again.

Are you thinking white background??  Personally I like the idea of making one continuous snake, and if the rainbow flowed from the beginning to the end of it I think it would look fine.   


If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.

Libby--that's exactly what I had planned (and yes, I'm going to use a white background).

I love the color wheel.  If I had enough patience and sewing skill I would definitely do that one.
