I have been working on this block for a while. It is from the quilt called Vintage Valentine. In this case, I am just making the one block as a little wall hanging. I have all the applique pieces prepped on freezer paper and glued together as one unit. It is time to decide on a back ground, and I am not sure. I originally planned on using the blue with roses fabric in the second picture, but am not sure if it is too distracting. Still, when I put the unit on a lighter background the birds and flowers seem to get lost.
Your task dear reader, if you choose to accept, is to let me know what you think. Light, dark, or should I look for something else entirely for the background. Thanks for your input.
