I brought various color fabrics with me this morning to audition for background for the Diamonds are Forever quilt – the final decision is still way in the future – I might not start to put this quilt top together until all the diamonds are made.
White – the light color diamond shows just fine here – I don’t know why I was concerned – I was thinking it would be lighter than it is and it has enough beige in it that is shows just fine with a white background.
A mottled gray
a kind of reddish/rust
Keep in mind of course that it would all be hexie size so laying them out on this piece of fabric you see a lot more of the background fabric than you actually would.
Out of all of these I still like the idea of White the best with the Brown second. I don’t really want a really “dark” quilt though so I will probably go with white on white prints.
