I have pieced all of the blocks, and now I am auditioning background and border fabrics.
I have some taupe cotton sateen that my friend Gail sent to me. Actually, I have it for another purpose, but I thought of using it for the setting blocks. I don't really feel that it is dark enough for what I plan to do with this piece.
I do love the fabric. It is some sort of hand dye I believe. The color is hard to find.
Instead, I found something in my collection that I think goes a little better with these blocks
The fabric is just a few shades darker. I also am using a different border fabric that picks up the colors of the blocks.
I have a feeling that I am going to hate to part with this. I could probably just go buy it, but I have a feeling that the price would be more than I could afford.
Once the fabric is gone, that's it. I only could find fat quarters as it was, and the fabric is an odd enough color, I don't come across it often.
I may be back later today, I didn't go in to work extra. I chose to stay home today and work on this instead.
