My fabrics arrived for the Swoon quilt. If you remember David and I decided on batiks in a blue/green/beige/brown combo.
I love all the fabrics... I'm just feeling really nervious about sewing such a big quilt in a fabric type/colour combo I've never used before.
In my head my MonSwoon quilt looks beautiful.
But then I look at the pile of murky brown fabrics and wonder if I've made a mistake.
For my background fabric I've gone for a very soft creamy beige. I think the Swoon quilt looks best on a white background. The beige I've picked is as close to that crisp, modern white look I could get without wrecking the earthy, natural style of the batiks.
I hope to be able to report back to you by the end of the week with a completed Monswoon block.
