A couple days ago I posted some of my hexie diamonds for Diamonds are Forever.
Some more here that aren’t pressed and in the process of:
More colors waiting to be made into diamonds. These are not necessarily the kind of colors I normally work with but I had won a large bundle of fat eighths and these were it.
Now for your opinion! What color should I use for the background – the white shown on the pattern – I have at least 7 cream prints if I keep them for use in the centers it will be ok to use a white/cream background but if I use those for the diamonds also they well blend into the background and not stand out. Now a couple here and there might be ok like that but I think I would probably have enough for 10 or more diamonds so that might not work.
So I need to keep an eye out for a background color – any help from you all? Yellow? a dark Brown? a dusty rose? I might very well need to add more colors for the diamonds as I go from the stash as I need 213 diamonds but over all this is going to be a more muted color quilt than I normally make. Before I get much further I would like to get the background decided on. Maybe just don’t make any cream color diamonds and stick with white for a background and there won’t be a problem.
