We have some ideas for you to consider when pulling fabric for your quilt.

Monochromatic - think of using one color for your rings. If you focus on one color it helps from being overwhelmed with all the choices.

The first example below is from @kalanchoe612, she used green for her rings. The second example is from @caseytaylorj where she went with navy rings from many of her favorite designer/lines.

Green rings

Two-Tone - think of two colors that compliment each other well and use those colors for your rings. It's sophisticated and simple. The example below is from @Ann We love that she sprinkles aqua in with her orange rings but also having on monochromatic blue ring.
It's Done!

Many Colors - the best part of this pattern by Denyse is it can be scrappy! Pull out your favorite scraps and start piecing without worrying how they go together. The example below is from @lamadwolfie. Isabel used her scraps and made the background navy wonky long cabins.

Favorite Fabric Line - do you have a favorite fabric line that came out and want to highlight it. This is a good project for that as well! Below Denyse used Washington Depot for the rings.

Fussy Cutting - do you want to highlight certain motifs of a fabric. It's a great way to showcases those cute prints you've been collecting. Below @Jo wanted to highlight the cute prints from Sherbet Pips by Aneela Hoey
