My PTA retreat is coming up next week,...we are all excited, getting ready and of course trying to come up with a project that will not be too intense so we can enjoy the camaraderie. I often work on the same thing as Kate and Mary...we started this at the first retreat doing I Spy quilts and being able to pool our fabric for lots of choices. It has been so much fun, we've kind of stuck to this plan every year. This year we're doing the same pattern, different fabrics.
I have a lot of different Indigo prints. I've also created some myself but not quite as dark as this. I decided to use this to make my quilt and a sashing of white. I thought (after cutting out lots of white strips) that the white was too stark and too much of a contrast to the very dark blue.
I had this other wonderful piece of fabric that I thought might do well as sashing - just the white areas with spidery veins (and work around the dark blue areas) - but not nearly enough fabric and too much waste...so what to do?
hmmmm....still haven't decided. I think either way I'll be happy, but I do lean a certain way. What do you think?
