Thank you all so much for the comments & suggestions on my last post.
You've given me lots to think about with my 'queen of the May' blocks.
Fast forward to now, and my indecsion about the backgrounds of my 'queen of the may' blocks. The 'printonprints' effect is quite wild and colourful! And so tempting. It's such a very different direction from where I would usually go.
So I’m heading this way ... just for a change ... and using the lovely Victoria Findlay Wolfe yellow floral, Elise Mostly Manor, as my background.
But as some of you pointed out, the blocks could easily get a bit lost on it. So what to do?
Yesterday I had a light bulb moment ... ric rac.
I've seen ric rac used on some quilts before - Rachaeldaisy from 'blue mountain daisy' has used ric rac in some very inspiring ways on her lovely quilts. So off I went to 'Spotlight' (it's similar to 'Jo Anns' I think), and bought a few metres of blue ric rac.
It’s my first time using ric rac to edge anything like this, and I had to quickly check out how to actually sew the ric rac on, you can see here too.
Yes, I think this could work out just fine
- only six more to do
