Quilting: Background Choices
Yeah, that's the Kona Sunrise bundle...and I bought it a few months back because I just love it!
Now I've found the perfect pattern to use it in...I think it will show off the fabric quite perfectly and become a quilt I'll want to use forever.
It's a star quilt...where I'll need a background fabric to offset the star fabric.
The star will be one of the fabrics from the bundle..
The star will be embedded in a solid block of color, a different fabric from the bundle.
It will be embedded in a block consisting of another one of those fabrics.
And there will be a third fabric...a background fabric to the star.
Which background fabric should I use?
Normally I'd just use the Kona White...it's my go-to background fabric, and it'd offset the blocks perfectly.
But I'm second-guessing myself....when I went to the fabric store, I brought home a bit of the Kona Aqua...and it works perfect with these fabrics. Besides stars come from the sky..and should reside in a blue fabric, right?
Decisions, decisions...the safe choice is with the White, but I really love the Aqua.
Help a girl out...what would you choose?
