My 'queen of the May' blocks are all made now. I've really enjoyed putting these together, from making the wild fabric choices right through to the traditional construction - the hardest thing was not to make them all too nicely co-ordinated.
I love all these blocks. However, I'm still very undecided about the backgrounds and am so not wanting to buy anything new. Here are the options from my stash ...
Kona cotton Corn
I would envisage some lovely quilted texture all over those yellow spaces if I used this.
VFW yellow floral Elise Mostly Manor
hm-m-m- it sure is a riot of busy happy colour here!
a scrappy selection of neutral plaids, spots & stripes
maybe playing it safe with an old-ish earthy striped Kaffe fabric for sashing...
Time for a bit of fun ... which option appeals to you?
Any thoughts or comments really welcome!
