Love the curved bits!!
Wow...all those fabrics really keep the eye moving. What a fun way to use loads of scraps.
I love those scraps! This is very inspiring. I hope you get some good ideas on what to do with the background. :)
Wow-this is so incredible- I think you should trust your instincts here but if you're collecting opinions- a background is said to give the eye a place to rest- so theoretically it could be good here- but it will come down to how it actually looks when you "audition it"- Either way this is quite an accomplishment!
Mymble Thanks! I'm thinking on doing something like this: http://www.quiltology.com/quiltology-notes-home/2012/10/24/the-tie-quilt.html but using a different solid. I'm thinking black.
Oh definitely...takes it to a whole new place...and the black sounds good to me...put my vote in the yes column!
The black sure adds interest and drama. Yeah....go for the black.
Yeah! Can't wait to see this with the background- you are one gutsy sewer- fabulous!
Mymble Charwirfs Carolmarie thanks ladies! I'm hoping to make it down to my friendly LQS sometime in the next couple days to get the black yardage I need to finish the top. My valentine's day gift this year is that I can send some things to the quilter (which is good, since this will be the 3rd top ready to go.
