Although I was all set to receive about 100 to 120 children for Halloween, we only got 26 children.... 26!!! That is sure a difference from what we used to get at our other house! I'll know not to buy so much next year!!! 8-/
I am behind in doing Myra Harder's Criss-Cross Apple-Sauce Mystery project for the simple reason of not having decided on my fabrics...
First I was going to choose Christmas fabrics, but no combination was doing it for me... Then I recalled some fabrics I had bought a while ago to make a table topper (top photo), but I don't have enough of the yellow required for a background... (there is yellow in the print, click for a closer look)
Then I thought, perhaps if I use white as the background and the yellow as a coordinate to the print (2nd photo) ... but I am not liking the white.
I thought back to my original 4 fabrics and thought "could I use the purple for the background?" Hmmmmm?
Then I found a green that would work with the print, but this confuses me even more!!! ... sign...
I still like the original 4, and I like the yellow for a background, and then thought "I wonder if my yellow from my Holly Jolly boarder would work instead of the other yellow?" hmmmm? It is plain, not tone on tone as the other, and I have lots... will it work?
Anyone have any thoughts to share with me? This is what I need;
1/2 yd border print and binding (small to mid size print)
I have enough of the print
1/3 yd background print
would like to use the yellow, but don't have enough of the tone on tone one
got lots of the plain yellow
1/4 yd medium color tone-on-tone print (to compliment the border print)
I have lots of the purple
1/4 yd medium color tone-on-tone (a different color than above, also to compliment the border print.)
I know it is not a medium color, but there is brown in the background of the print, and I do have enough...
Your opinions are welcome... 8-)
