Another one finished and now only 19 to go. I seem to be leaning to working on this and Memories of Smudge at the same time, although once Friday comes it will be the Memories of Smudge blocks only until they’re finished.
Figuring out the setting of the Memories of Smudge blocks may take some time as I want to try to ensure that the same fabrics don’t meet. That could be rather tricky as there aren’t a huge variety of fabrics used in the blocks. I’m going to tack a flannel sheet up on the wall and take my time sorting out the placement. While that’s going on, I will be back to working on Stormy Seas.
In addition to the groupings of fabrics I showed yesterday I’m trying to figure out what to use with this fabric. I’ve had it for ages and it really intrigues me but finding just the right other fabric(s) to use with it has become a challenge. We photographed it on top of a piece of grey fabric in hopes of getting a true read on its colour.
With a purple batik? Maybe.
With a pink? Very slight maybe.
With a yellow? No, not with a kitty paw too.
This is it with the yellow which appears more orange than it is. Anyway, I don’t think this one works.
Mr. Q.O. suggested using a red with it. This does not appeal to me at all.
I’ve put it beside a white and can almost see it as a very low contrast two-colour quilt with a white. But I’m absolutely stymied when it comes to using it with anything but that white. Any suggestions on what to pair with it are more than welcome. Or perhaps this is one of those fabrics that needs to be a quilt backing.
