It’s hard to find sewing time this time of year but I’ve been trying. Even though I’ve made the Road to Llano top once, I need to make it again to check the instructions so I’m trying to get enough done to be confident with the instructions when they post on June 3. Thankfully, what I’ve done so far has not involved the background fabric but today . . the background fabric gets used and I don’t have a clue which one I should use. I can see strong and weak points to all three. Help please! 🙂
My least favorite of the background options is the ecru. At first, it was my second choice . . before I pulled the pale yellow fabric. I think the ecru washed out the other colors.
My second choice is this pale yellow Krystal. I like it and it’s a very, very close second to the white Dimples.
My first choice, and it’s so close to my second choice is the white. This is a hard decision!
Normally, the pale yellow Krystal would have been my first choice but when I see what the white does in the other Road to Llano quilt, I just keep coming back to white as the background.
I love how the white makes the lavender, purple and green just come to life. Will it be as striking with the colors in the new top or should I go with the pale yellow? Quick . . tell me so I can go sew (as soon as I finish planting sweet potatoes!).
