Jar Quilt -Veggies-Need help
I want to make a jar quilt for my DH's Aunt & Uncle. He is a real farmer growing up on a family farm, now lives in suburbia. He has a green thumb and more gardening knowledge and experience than I will ever have~and she is (was) a huge canner. Age and poor health has slowed them down, but he still has a huge garden, giving away most of what he grows.
I wanted to use the Market Farm veggies and food fabrics.
My question is regarding the background. Pictures of all the ones I have seen, use a dark or black for the background. I use alot of black, but I think they would prefer a light or white background. I have some white on white with dragonflies w/ tiny black specs for their eyes leftover from another project. Do you think the white will provide a big enough contrast to use as the background? I wanted to do shelves or bookcases but need to create that depth. Suggestions? Opinions?
I looked at your Camp Cheerio Jar quilt - I really liked it.
You did such a nice job!
