I wish I could say there’s been some progress here, but really… um, no. I made up all these blocks, put them up on the wall, and have been staring at them ever since. I’ve auditioned a bunch of background fabrics, but nothing seems quite right. All along I’ve been thinking of an Essex yarn dyed, but so far I haven’t found the perfect one. I’ve also considered a low volume/barely a print, but again, haven’t found quite the right one.
I got a lot of great suggestions on Instagram yesterday, so maybe I’ll finally figure something out? I’m still open to ideas, so do leave a comment if you have an idea for a great background fabric!
(oh, and yes, these do remind me of nautical flags, though that wasn’t actually my inspiration. If I ever get this one made up into a quilt top I’ll fill you in on my original inspiration!)
