Have you decided on your background colour yet? I’ve been thinking it could look rather smashing in low-volumes, too, but have to mull this over for a couple of days still. Another solid than white could also work really well, as long as a possible line of the same colour wouldn’t disappear completely. Maybe an Essex linen, possibly yarn-dyed, could work, too, although not for me, since I have neither the amount needed, nor the skills currently to sew with quilting cottons and mixed-fibre fabrics combined. Oooh, or how about shot cottons? Decisions, decisions…
Cutting the pieces for week 5:
- A first third of the background
How are you feeling about all this cutting? Is it how you usually make quilts, prepare all pieces first, then sew individual blocks, and finally all blocks together? I must admit I don’t work this way usually, but finish steps here and there, and I rather like this properly prepared method.
