i have finally gotten all of my strawberry field blocks sewn together and am now trying to make a decision regarding which background fabric i should set them together with. the setting will be in a streak of lightening or zig zag form as i have laid out in the photos below.
the colors are all coming across fairly "true" and you should be able to click and enlarge if you would like.
this cheddar fabric was just a touch brighter than i wanted so i gave it a brief soak in some instant coffee. (not the best for drinking but a great "dye" for this overdye technique.) i think it took the edge off quite nicely and even if i don't use it for this little quilt i think it will be useful in some future reproduction style quilt project.
