"Many hours of hard work go into making quilts and it is not really rewarding to make something that you are not completely happy with or that has materials and colors that you don’t like or that do not blend well with the intended display area."
This is a statement from a page in Quilting 101. I can honestly say I have never thought about creating a quilt based upon where it will be displayed. But it makes prefect sense. If I wanted to create a quilt to hang in my foyer, a really bright modern quilt would not look good there. My foyer has ducks and cattails. (WAAAAAAAY before Duck Dynasty. But I do have dinner a couple times a month with a Duck Dynasty Cousin and her husband!)
Maybe a funky duck quilt would fit in, in heather-y colors.
So you really do need to consider your space and also your recipient when you make a quilt. But you know what?
This is what hangs in my duck foyer! LOL. I maybe need to rethink this, huh?
