This involved digging in the stash - deep. I have been able to mix some reproduction fabrics in with the brights, pastels and Kaffe prints. The oldest print I used in a yellow pin dot from 1985 - really!
I would love to have your opinions - fresh eyes please.
I will most likely machine quilt the blue dots, and want to use fabrics that compliment the appliqué. I am fairly certain I will add a busy print border, I did the appliqued border on the first two.
So, here we go....
I like the Kaffe print for the border, do you?
I am thinking of using the prints from the applique for the alternate blocks. Are they too much? Do prints help the applique detail pop?
What would Catherine think of her 1855 flowers?
Or, is keeping it all 'dotty' better?
There would be texture in the alternate block after quilting. Is it more soothing to the eye with the pastel Kaffe print?
I think I've decided, then looking this morning I changed my mind again.
Your thoughts please? TIA for taking time to leave a comment.
