Advice Wanted!

Denise in Italy would like advice on which setting fabric to use for her SAL blocks. Go to the SAL patterns blog and click on her blog link.  You can then translate it when you arrive and give her your advice. 
 I like the brown or pink. How about you?
And Linda is making steady progress.
I am thinking about my next small scale project.  I like the Farmer's Wife Quilt, but 6" blocks are too big for me.  Perhaps 4 1/2" blocks set medallion style like the following quilt.
This quilt was hung at the Des Moines show this weekend.  I need to find out who made it to give them credit if I mimic their setting. I know two women there this week who might be able to help with that. If you do know who made this quilt, please let me know.
This quilt is in the book Just Plain Nuts by Liz Lois. 
I love the cheddar and blue setting and the complexity of the blocks.
I will be buying the book soon.
Food for thought.
