Trying Out the Background Color
Well, I was good this weekend, I did finish the piecing the border on the Summer in the City quilt and now only am waiting for more brown fabric to finish the outer border. I will post another picture when the top is finished.
I also worked on piecing the last 32 blocks for my 30's quilt. I am about half way through finishing them and happily my background fabrics arrived this morning! I chose three typical 30's colors because I still have a lot of 30's prints to use up and will need backgrounds for those future quilts. This allows me to "try out" what will work for this project. So, I laid them out and you can see in the photo how they might look. I now have a strong feeling for which one I would like to use, but I would like you to vote as well and hopefully you will be confirming my thoughts... I hope. Otherwise, I might have to have a real think about it. Please let me know which one. Thanks!
