Decisions, Decisions

I have been playing with fabrics for the  Natures Journey SAL.

Now I  think I have  finally  decided on  these thirties  style fabrics and the  background  will be either this cream or white.




Originally I  thought I would  be using Tilda, but have changed  my mind! I have some other scraps of thirties  prints that I  will more than likely  incorporate  as well.

I would welcome  any feedback,  please.

Do you think it would be ok to have the background  all the same colour,  eg the cream or white.

Hugs

Sharon

I used a 1930s base for my SKofW and I used a white.............I think one background fabric would look fine..........I had considered it if I could not find enough backgrounds.........

Hi Sharon, yes, agreed the one colour would look good. Especially with all the colours of those beautiful fabrics you have with it.
I have different backgrounds, but have gone for neutrals. Once I get to the patchwork squares of the borders, will have to see just how much of the neutral goes in to it.

I think your choices are great the background will make those fabrics "pop" xx

Susan said...

The fabrics look reat and yes I'd go white too.

Anita : Shabby Quilt said...

Lovely choice, my choice would be white also.

Wendy said...

I think solid white would be great with your 30's fabrics. I say go for it, after all it is about your preference in the end. If you love it then you know you will treasure it.

That is what makes this group so great, seeing all the different interpretations. I think one background would be lovely and have considered doing the same as seen in my earlier post.

The 1930's fabrics will look lovely.. I would go with the white background as there is more white in the 1930's fabrics than cream really.
