I’m plugging away on my UFO projects.
Monday I told you that I had more or less put myself on a “no sewing until I clean the sewing room” lock down but sometimes a I have to finish some things to really get the cleaned up. That’s the case with my Santa Fe String Star quilt. I have the center done. I have the borders done. I need to decide what to do for a background.
I decided to pull some fabric and see.
The original pattern calls for a red background. For some reason I was really hesitant about that. I thought a cream colored might be safer…what do you think?
As long as I was laying it all out I thought I might as well grab some other pieces of fabric too.
Here’s what gold looked like.Hubby says no way to that.
Yes Ruby had to join in and be her glamorous self.
Here was blue. It’s a batik. I don’t really have any other batik fabrics in the project but that’s okay, right?
Hubby liked this option so I took a closer up picture too.
I admit to kind of liking the blue….but wait, there’s more options.
This was a dull red.
..and this was the bright red I originally bought.
Me, I like the blue batik or the bright red. How about you? What would you pick for a background? I’m hoping to have this together next week….
You’ll find me right back here next week..the goal is to have this quilt top together AND to have the sewing room clean. Can I do it? I sure hope so.
