Today I came into the sewing room and saw the backing of one of last summer's quilts--a deep, rich purple, just as I had been thinking of using for the Split Nine Patch.
I put it underneath the Split Nine Patch quilt top and took a picture. Often a picture shows up flaws or good choices quicker than examining something visually. Then I put both pictures up on my "desktop" of my computer.
When I look at them this way, I think there's just no contest as to which is the better colour choice.
What do you think?
