My Mind's Made Up

I've been in the basement working on the fabrics for this quilt and have decided it will be done in the Kaffe fabrics ala Glorious Applique.  Certainly have enough of them in my stash - and it's fun using the really wild fabrics in such an old fashioned quilt.  This pattern was from the 1930's. 
Instead of matching the backgrounds of each of the fabrics, I am going black for the buttonhole stitch.  That gives it a really old fashioned look and I like the way it kind of unifies the pieces.  The closeup shot lets me know I might be going a little too fast around the curves!  When it is all done, though, little bobbles will be hard to spot!  That certainly is a great shot - you can see the weave of the fabric perfectly!  Good little Sony.

You have a winning combination here with the pattern, the background fabric, those wonderful Kaffe fabrics, and the unifying black blanket stitch. This is going to be a stunner!
